|Are You In Need Of Home Health Care?
Home Health Care is often prescribed for patients recovering from illness such as heart attacks, strokes, injuries due to accidents, diabetes, high blood pressure and other chronic medical conditions. Home health services can only be prescribed by your physician. A medical plan is specifically designed for the patients needs. The services are not to replace hospitalization, but to assist the patient in being released earlier from the hospital with the services provided by a professional staff. In order to receive home health services, the patient must be considered homebound. Homebound is defined as a person who requires considerable efforts and assistance to leave home. Talk to your physician or the social services department at your local hospital if you are in need of home health services.

Dor-An’s Home Health was founded in 1993 and is owned by Patricia S. Saenz.Patricia has been in the medical field all throughout her life and has always had the passion for helping all the infirm, disabled, and homebound patients in and around her community. With her mother Katy T. Saenz, RN, BSN, by her side as the Administrator, along with her two brothers Joe E. Saenz Jr as C.F.O. and Jonathan Saenz as Computer Programmer. The family works together to assist their patients with their health care needs within a home enviroment with the help of all their highly trained and knowledgable staff. Dor-An’s Home Health staff of RN’s, LVN’s, and Home health Aides agree with both physicians and patients as they recognize the familiar surroundings help patients recover faster than they would in an institutional enviroment.
When servicing the elderly in the community with highly trained nurses, physical, speech, occupational therapists, and medical social workers, Patricia saw the need for other means of assistance needed by the elderly. Dor-An’s then began to expand their services by offering Primary Home Care services with a provider in the home to assist with the patient’s daily activities and personal care. Along with the CBA program to further assist the patients and keep them surrounded by their loved ones. In order to improve the services offered to our patients, Patricia expanded the company by successfully opening a branch office in 2004. Here at Dor-An’s Home Health we strive to assist our patients with all of their health care needs, “…because there’s no place like home.” Over 15 years in business, the Saenz family attributes company success in the retention of its employees.
