What separates Masonic Village Home Health from other providers? Compared to state and national averages, our patients start receiving care quicker, and we promptly address physicians’ recommendations. We also ensure needs beyond daily care are met, such as making sure patients receive flu and pneumonia vaccines.
Following referral from a primary care provider, your first meeting with Masonic Village Home Health staff will be to customize a care plan. We will continue to coordinate your care with your primary care provider and schedule visits as often as necessary.
Personalized services include skilled nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, medical social work and home health aides. On-call nursing support is available 24 hours a day.

A primary care provider is a first point of contact who determines when a person is eligible for home health services. Primary care providers collaborate with members of Masonic Village’s team to develop your care plan.
An outreach coordinator is your first point of contact at Masonic Village. This individual helps determine insurance eligibility and what services are needed.
Social workers work with clients to assess the full range of their needs and help them access the services and resources to improve their quality of life. In short, social workers help people solve problems, set goals, and advocate for patients and their families in their communities.
Home health aides assist with basic routine care such as bathing, dressing, and other hygiene tasks as directed by the professional care team.
