“Caring for seniors is a labor of love and requires a special person”

North Runnels Home Health offers a wide range of health care services that can be given in your home for an illness or injury. Home health care is usually less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective as care you get in a hospital or skilled nursing facility (SNF).

The goal of home health care is to treat an illness or injury. Home health care helps you:

  • Get better
  • Regain your independence
  • Become as self-sufficient as possible
  • Maintain your current condition or level of function
    Slow decline

First of all I want to thank North Runnels Home Health for such wonderful service in the past and now. I love that the nurses educate me on my medications, blood sugars and high blood pressure. I have learned a lot and also how to manage my health issues. The nurses are always documenting what I need for my doctor appointments and that makes my doctor visits a lot easier. Whenever I need a home health aide, physical therapy or occupational therapy, I know I can always count on North Runnels Home Health.

Rebecca M Martinez

North Runnels Home Health is my life. It is good to have a service I can rely on. If I had to go to the hospital, it would be very hard for me. I rely on them to check on me for my medical needs and can still be home instead of a nursing home. North Runnels Home Health keeps an eye on you. I ‘ve had several experiences with nursing homes and did not feel good about it. I’m really pleased with my nurses.

Jack Hatler

The nurses are really nice and reliable. I’ve been using North Runnels Home Health Services for the past couple of years. I am pleased with them. If I need anything including clinic follow up or labs they are always on the lookout for my medical needs. I’m very comfortable with the professionalism and caring service. I will recommend North Runnels Home Health to anyone that needs home health. I say this with all my heart.

Ida Wehlman

I spent 32 years in the Army where I was a Captain, and fought years in Vietnam. I have never seen such professionalism as I have with North Runnels Home Health and Therapy along with the clinic, physicians and hospital. I am very pleased with my home health nurse Willie and my therapy Willie. Both are sharp and knowledgeable. This community should be very proud of the service of North Runnels Home Health. I recommend this service to anyone needing home healthcare.
