Our home visit team is here for you when you are unable to come to one of the health centers whether it is because of transportation issues, surgeries, or you are unable to travel to one our health centers. They are based out of Franklin and consist of:
- Martha Williams, Physician’s Assistant – Family Medicine
- Whitney Hedrick, Care Manager
Monday-Friday 8:00AM – 4:30PM
In-Home medical visits, Immunizations, Flu Shots
The first patient seen by the Home Visit Program was seen on February 4, 2015. The Home Visit Team is comprised of a nurse practitioner and a care manager who travel to people’s homes and conduct doctor’s visits. The area that they service is the greater Pendleton Community Care service area- which consists of Pendleton, Randolph, and Grant County in West Virginia and Highland County in Virginia. They conduct the same things as you would see in an in-clinic visit- monitoring vital signs, perform quality management measures, perform blood draws, conduct diabetic foot exams, and do head-to- toe assessments. They see patients chronically as well as people who are acutely sick. They conduct appointments Monday through Friday from 8am to 4:30pm.
To qualify for the Home Visit program, a patient must be over the age of 65 and have a chronic disease process (for example Diabetes, Hypertension, or Congestive Heart Failure). However, these are not the only diseases that would warrant you a visit. Another qualifying measure is that you must be “home bound” or have limited access to your medical doctor. This means that you can’t drive, don’t have a car, have limitations visually, and have a chronic disease that would cause you undue harm to make the trip to the clinic. Again, these are only examples and do not exclude a patient if you don’t have these limitations. The other qualifying parameter is that at this time any and all patients in the Home Visit patient base MUST be patients of Pendleton Community Care and already be established with one of the providers there. If you would like to take advantage of the Home Visit Program at Pendleton Community Care and do not already see a doctor, please call and set up an initial visit with a PCC provider.
The Home Visit Program Team is always looking for new patients and would love to become part of your medical team. Please contact the care manager at (304) 358-2355; Monday - Friday, 8:00am - 4:30pm, to set up a visit today.
