Home Care

KSB Home Care clinicians provide skilled care in the comfort of the patient’s home as ordered by their physician. Our goal is to maintain and improve your health to keep you independent in your home. We accomplish this through education and patient involvement. Our team works together to provide you with coordinated, quality care. We offer a wide range of home care services including:

  • Nursing
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Speech therapy
  • Social services
  • Home health aides

KSB Home Care provides assistance to a wide range of patients. We care for those who have recently been discharged from a hospital or skilled nursing facility, the physically disabled, and pediatric patients.

We accept Medicare, Medicaid, most insurances and private pay.

Our office is located in KSB Hospital. Care is available to patients in Lee County as well as parts of other neighboring counties. For more information on Home Care call (815) 284-5710.

Patient Navigator

Chronically ill patients often find it difficult to navigate the healthcare system in their struggles to achieve quality of life.
 
KSB has answered this need by establishing the Patient Navigator position as part of KSB’s Home Health Care Department. The goal of the Patient Navigator is to help patients improve their quality of life so that they do not need to be readmitted to the hospital. Patients suffering from congestive heart failure (CHF), pneumonia  or individuals who have experienced myocardial infarction (MI), or heart attacks are receiving care from KSB’s Patient Navigator.
 
Components of the Patient Navigator program will include patient assessment and education, collaboration with other providers and telemonitoring, in which patients will call into an automated system on a daily basis to answer monitoring questions.
 
If you would like more information about KSB’s Patient Navigator program or want to make a referral, please call 815-284-5710.
