WILLOW CIRCLE OF CARE
Willow’s patient-centered approach is designed specifically for each patient’s needs and abilities. Care services are prescribed by physicians, and administered by skilled nurses, rehabilitation specialist or non-medical caregivers. Home health care visits are generally covered 100 percent by Medicare through Medicare home health benefits or private insurance.
Willow takes a team-oriented approach toward end-of-life care for patients with terminal illnesses or injury. Our compassionate approach provides professional medical, emotional, and spiritual support for patients and their loved ones, as they approach the end stages of the patient’s life. We recognize that each patient’s journey is unique, so each care plan is designed to the specifications of the patient or loved one’s needs.

Private duty nursing care provides skilled medical care from clinically trained caregivers such as registered nurses (RNs) or licensed practical nurses (LPNs). Many conditions that require nursing care present medical, psychological and emotional challenges to the patient and his or her caregivers. Including a private duty nurse in the patient’s care team alleviates some of that burden, so the patient and caregivers can focus on recovery.
Willow employs highly trained nurses who strive to give clients the highest quality medical attention, ongoing support, and rehabilitative care needed. Private Duty services are available in shifts from 2 to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
