Our Services


Skilled nursing care services are covered when they are given on a part-time or intermittent basis. In order for these services to be covered by your insurance plan, your care must be necessary and ordered by your doctor for your specific condition.

Skilled nursing services are given by either a registered nurse (RN) or a licensed practical nurse (LPN). If you get care from an LPN, your care will be supervised by an RN. These 5 Star Healthcare home nurses provide direct care and teach you and your caregivers about your care. They also manage, observe, and evaluate your care.

Home Health Aide services may be covered when given on a part-time or intermittent basis if needed as support services for skilled nursing care. Our 5 Star Healthcare home health aide services is a part of the care for your illness or injury.
