How To Get Started

If you are a patient, the first step to beginning home health care with In-HomeCare America is requesting a referral for home healthcare from your physician or hospital discharge planner. Family members of patients who need home health care services may also request a referral.

Medical professionals can refer patients to us by phone, fax or completing the referral form located here. 


Once your referral has been received, In-HomeCare will send a registered nurse or therapist to your home for an assessment and begin the admission process.
