Home Health Agency

The Vinton County Home Health Agency, established in 1969, is a division of the Vinton County Health Department. We are a comprehensive home care agency providing a variety of services including skilled nursing, physical therapy, personal care, aid, and homemaking services to individuals in their own home. All Home Health Services are provided with physicians orders from the client's individual doctor. Our agency utilizes Registered Nurses (R.N.) as case managers for the individual clients. The R.N., as the nurse case manager will make needed and appropriate referrals to help ensure the needs of the client are met. The nurses stay in constant contact with all health care providers involved in their clients care, including the managing physician and other community providers to ensure that the client receives the best and most comprehensive of care.

Referrals are accepted from any source, hospitals, doctors, family, and friends, other agencies or clients may even refer themselves. If needed, our staff can contact the physician for orders for home care.

Our agency accepts most forms of payment, Medicare, Medicaid, Veterans Administration (VA), Private Insurance, and Workers Compensation. Since the Home Health Agency is a division of the local Health Department, we are able to provide some services at reduced or no cost to the client if there is no source of payment.

The Vinton County Home Health Agency is a member of the Ohio Council for Home Care and is Medicare certified through the Ohio Department of Health.
