Through Joe Laney's heart repair, he had Summa Health at Home to take care of him. He said you feel more secure just knowing someone is available. And he hopes that with the help of Summa, his heart will last another 20 or 30 years.
We provide home healthcare based on each patient's medical, personal and situational needs. We work with you and your physician or provide you with a Summa Health physician, to develop a plan of care to meet your individual needs.
In-Home Services include:
Our home healthcare professionals provide medical services throughout northeast Ohio including Summit, Cuyahoga, Stark, Portage and Medina counties. Patients can feel confident in Summa because we are experts in healthcare with a network of 8 hospitals and more than 30 healthcare facilities.
Our Summa Health at Home program can be invaluable for patients with chronic severe illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, pneumonia, stroke, and heart failure, -or those at an increased risk for falls or medication errors. The program is particularly helpful for patients who find it difficult to leave their homes because of surgery, injury, or certain mental health issues such as depression or heightened anxiety. By receiving home healthcare, many patients avoid trips to the emergency department, admissions/readmissions to the hospital or admission to a nursing home.
Studies show that a person's home can be a beneficial environment for recuperating from an illness or injury. Summa’s caring approach to the delivery of home healthcare services focuses on your individual needs and goals.
