General information

What is Home Healthcare? Home healthcare is the service by which patients can receive quality medical treatment from skilled nurses, therapists and home health aides under the supervision of their physician. Each patient will have an individualized plan of treatment to meet their specific medical needs. Because the treatment is at the patient’s home, there is a feeling of relief for the patient as they are in a familiar environment surrounded by loving people and their most treasured possessions. This type of treatment is more conducive for the patient’s recovery. Agape Home Healthcare exists to take care of all your home healthcare needs. We can provide you with nursing, therapy, medical social worker and home health aide through our Home Health Division. In addition to these services, meal preparation, light housekeeping and more can be provided for you through our Long Term Care Division. There will be no cost to you for our services if you qualify. Call 972-681-8420 for more information. We are now hiring nurses and therapists. Who Qualifies? You are eligible to receive our services if you are currently being treated for an illness or have been recently hospitalized and are essentially homebound. A plan of care will be developed for each patient and an order will be obtained from the patient’s physician. We Accept: • Medicare • Medicaid • Private Pay • State Funding • Long Term Care Insurance Financial Arrangements Agape offers a variety of payment options (see above). On occasion, we might be able to arrange payment plans to meet your client’s specific needs.
