GOOD SHEPHERD HOME HEALTH & HOSPICE
Good Shepherd Home Health & Hospice delivers personalized in-home treatment to promote healing and foster independence for those striving to manage disability and disease outside of a facility.
Home health grants homebound patients the ability to recover from illness or injury at home while surrounded by the positivity of friends and family. Our patients live on their own terms and are given compassionate care tailored to the individual.
Our communities entrust us with their loved one’s care. As one of the Top 100 Home Care Elite, we rank among the nation’s top home health agencies. We are devoted to making every patient a member of the Good Shepherd family.
Home health aides provide everyday assistance allowing patients to carry on a daily schedule without being limited by the effects of disease and disability. Nurses monitor each individual, delivering wound care and administering medication, in addition to offering speech, occupational and physical therapy.
Good Shepherd also offers peace of mind for patients and caregivers with Lifeline, a medical alert system that connects patients with emergency services with the press of a button.
When it is time to embark on end-of-life care, hospice staff forms an alliance between patients and care teams, including nurses, aides, and members of the faith community, social workers and volunteers. They work in tandem with families to determine how to comfortably manage symptoms and pain for their loved ones. Following the passing of a patient, grief support is available to families for one year.
A referral from your physician is needed to begin home health and hospice treatment. Medicare, Medicaid and private insurers are accepted.
Community Alternative Program
Good Shepherd spearheads case management of the Community Alternative Program (CAP) for disabled adults in Cherokee County and disabled children (CAP-C) in Cherokee and Clay counties.
The community-based waiver service provides an alternative to placing North Carolina Medicaid recipients within a nursing facility or hospital setting, allowing patients to receive care in the home.
Social workers and registered nurses manage cases by connecting clients with local agencies and resources that supply care such as nursing, in-home aid, respite care and more.
