About Spirit Home Health Care

Spirit Home Health obtained its Medicare certification in 1996. Since that time the California Department of Health Services has conducted regular surveys of the agency, all of which had excellent results and is a matter of public record. We have a CLIA waiver, which allows us to collect patient specimens for laboratory testing. The agency is accredited with the Joint Commission and a member of both the National Association for Homecare and Hospice (NAHC) as well as the California Association for Health Services at Home (CAHSAH).

Spirit Home Health is an equal opportunity employer. We pride ourselves on our diverse and professional work force, both in the office and in the field. We conduct background checks on all of our staff. We seek to hire individuals who view home care as we do - as a beneficial and much needed public service. The staff at Spirit has many years combined experience in home health. Spirit also believes in continuing education for both the clinical and clerical staff. Staff members regularly attend conferences and seminars sponsored by various home health educational organizations, including NAHC and CAHSAH. We also provide regularly scheduled in-service education for clinical staff and competency training for our home health aides.

At Spirit we have the ability, training, and education needed to serve all types of patient populations, from acute to chronic, young to old, and everyone in between. We work closely with physicians and other medical professionals to ensure that our patients get the very best care. We have a 24 hour phone line with a live person available to serve you. At Spirit we provide services to people in need, regardless of race, creed, color, national origin or sexual preference. We accept Medicare and MediCal, as well as many private insurance companies. We can also make arrangements for payments directly by the patient or patient's family.
