Part of your community

UPMC Home Healthcare and Family Hospice is part of your community. Our nurses and therapists live and work in their home communities, providing individualized, timely care to patients and their families — in their homes — while they recover from injury, illness, or surgery.

Our Caregivers

UPMC Home Healthcare and Family Hospice employs home health experts that live and work in their local community. Our care team includes specialized nurses, highly skilled rehabilitation therapists (physical, occupational and speech), social workers, dietitians, home health aides, and trained administrative staff. Our goal is to provide each patient with personalized care in their home while ensuring the best possible experience.

Specialized Nursing Services

Our specialized nurses teach you about your condition and how to follow a self-care plan. They help you with medication and symptom management. These nurses have advanced training in one or more specialties such as:

Heart conditions   Pediatrics   Mother-Baby Care
Lung Disease   Joint Replacement   Diabetes
Cancer   Orthopaedic surgeries   IV (intravenous therapy)
Geriatrics   Bariatrics  


If you need rehabilitation after an illness, injury or accident, our physical, occupational and speech therapists are highly trained and will work with you to help you on the road to recovery.

Wound Care

To heal wounds as quickly and painlessly as possible, our specialty-trained nurses work with the most current techniques and wound care products available. They will teach you how to comfortably follow a self-care plan to hasten your healing.

Nutrition Support

Our unique nutrition service lets you consult a nutrition specialist at your home or on the phone. Registered dieticians can assess and advise you about specific needs related to your health condition, such as diabetes, heart disease or obesity.

Medical Social Workers

Our medical social workers know how to connect you and your family to the right services and resources in the community, whether you need a support group, an assisted living facility or financial aid.

Home Health Aides

During recovery, it may be difficult or impossible to perform daily personal care. Our home health aides can help you with dressing, bathing, and other tasks. All have successfully completed a certified nursing assistant program.

Hospice Care

UPMC Home Healthcare and Family Hospice strives to help patients live peacefully and comfortably at the end of life by providing hospice care to patients in their home. Hospice care helps terminally ill patients live out their final days with dignity, comfort and the best possible quality of life.

Palliative Care

Palliative Care is a comprehensive, patient and family centered approach to improving the quality of life for people who are living with a serious or potentially life-limiting illness. Palliative care can be, and oftentimes is, given in conjunction with treatments designed to cure a patient’s underlying illness. The advanced care team works to create a treatment plan taking into account the individual patient’s goals and wishes for care.

UPMC Remote Monitoring Program

Remote monitoring is a way for your health care team to keep track of your health when you are not in our hospital. An electronic device (tablet) can be used to enter your health information daily which will then be sent to health care experts.
