Refer a Patient
Patients can be referred to XL Home Health Care for psychiatric home health and home care services by their primary care physician, psychiatrist, case manager, social worker, hospital discharge planner, family members, friends, or by patient request. At XL Home Health Care, we try to make our referral process as simple as possible for family members and medical providers interested in referring a patient for our home care services. Therefore, we provide our quick and simple referral form online. We also take referrals by phone or fax.
Following the referral, we will contact the patient or family member and schedule an initial home care visit. A nurse or physical therapist will visit the home, assess the patient’s condition and discuss home care services that will most benefit the patient and family.
During the patient’s time in our care, our home care team works closely with the physician and family, tailoring services to the patient’s evolving needs. We are the ears and eyes of the patient’s doctor as we evaluate progress, discuss changes in treatment with the physician and support the patient’s needs, helping to avoid or reduce unnecessary hospital visits.
