“Every detail was handled meticulously I have never ever saw anything so well done. The [aide] stayed with me the whole time. They even bundled me up in a blanket, because it was extremely cold outside that day."
Westhills Village's Medicare-certified Home Health Agency provides skilled care as ordered by a physician and administered by our licensed, experienced health care professionals. In the comfort of your own home, you or your loved one can receive individualized care. Stay safe and independent, and experience increased engagement in life through the benefit of our Home Health services if you live in Rapid City or the surrounding area.
Home Health Care is a vital part of the continuum of care. This flexible system, available in-residence, allows people to remain in their home while receiving many of the professional health services available at a higher level of care.
"After my total knee replacement surgery, I knew I needed additional help. I was thankful for the excellent care I received in the convenience of my own home. The professional staff administered everything from checking my vitals, meeting my personal needs and coordination of Physical and Occupational Therapy. They also assessed my home for safety. I thought Westhills Village was only a retirement community, but they offer so much more!"
In keeping with Westhills Village's philosophy, Independence Plus is a comprehensive private pay program designed to help keep clients comfortably independent and in their own homes as long as possible. By taking advantage of the Independence Plus program and its trained staff members, clients can continue to focus and participate in their social events and hobbies rather than on the responsibilities of daily living. Because the options are easily tailored to your particular requests, these extra services also free family members and loved ones from worry and from the need, for example, to transport clients to and from doctor's visits. Using Independence Plus services is also the most cost-effective option, as it allows Residents to pick and choose those services they really desire.
Services range from hands-on caretaking and health management to simple, nurturing companionship. These scheduled services may be temporary or on-going and are adjusted as dictated by evolving needs. All services are available to the community at large, regardless of age or residency, in the Rapid City and surrounding metro areas. While urgent calls take precedence, requests for transportation are usually fulfilled within 24-48 hours. Transportation to medical appointments and other engagements may be arranged by calling the Reception Desk. Our regular van runs Monday through Friday. Availability, hours and fees, which depend upon time and mileage, are available at the Reception Desk. A 24-hour notice is greatly appreciated.
