Home Care Behavioral Health

About the Program

Home Care ProgramThe Memorial Hermann Home Care Behavioral Health Program offers patients with mental health issues treatment within the comfort of their own homes.

Following an assessment of the patient’s mental status, family dynamics, home environment and safety, the Memorial Hermann Home Care Behavioral Health Services team will develop a customized treatment plan that can include:

  • Identifying positive coping mechanisms to maintain independence
  • Patient education
  • Medication management and compliance
  • Interdisciplinary care planning
  • Community resource referral and coordination

A goal of the program is to decrease hospital/emergency room readmissions. To achieve this goal, each patient is provided with a customized treatment plan. On average, those patients that follow the plan experience fewer hospital/emergency room readmissions.

The team of experts consists of a board-certified psychiatrist, registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, social workers specialized in  behavioral health issues, and other home care disciplines. The Program  accepts all payor types, including  Medicaid and self-pay patients.
