Home Health Care

Inter-County Nursing Service is Medicare certified and licensed by the State of Minnesota to provide Home Health Care services.

What is Home Health Care?

Home Health care are services that are medically necessary and ordered by a physician. These are services that enable an individual to receive care at home and decrease the possibility of facility placement. Home Health services also assist in recovery at home after major hospitalization. Home care is best suited for those that do not need 24 hour supervision or monitoring. The program of care can short or long term.
