Visiting Physicians, Home Care & Hospice

Barnabas Health Home Care & Hospice

The care you need, in the place you know by heart. Home.
Home Care
Barnabas Health Home Care and Hospice is one of New Jersey’s highest-rated providers for home health and hospice care. In partnership with VNA Health Group, we de liver Medicare and Medicaid-certified home health, hospice care and private care throughout Essex County and in Bayonne, East Newark, Harrison, Jersey City and Kearny in Hudson County.
Home health care is often prescribed by a physician for nur sing and rehabilitation services following a stay in the hospital or to help individuals with a long-term ill ness or disability remain independent at home.
The goal of Barnabas Health Home Care and Hospice is to treat an illness or injury while helping patients regain their independence and become as self-sufficient as possible. We collaborate with the patient’s physician and family to customize a care plan and coordinate a wide range of in-home services delivered by skilled registered nurses, therapists, and other health care p rofessionals. Medical social workers may also be called to coordinate resources and support, as well as long-t erm care planning.

They are exclusively devoted to making house calls to the frail, chronically ill, elderly and homebound.
