About Potomac Home Health Care

Potomac Home Health Care, a non-profit joint venture of Suburban Hospital and Sibley Memorial Hospital, is a full service, Medicare-certified home health agency which provides a comprehensive range of home care services in Maryland and Washington, DC. Using a team approach, we make every attempt to recognize and meet the needs of homebound patients.

Potomac Home Health Care Services

Our program stresses personalized care, tailored to the needs of each patient. We work closely with the physician, the patient and family members to plan, review progress and make adjustments to the plan of care. This approach results in a better treatment plan and greater understanding and support for patients and family members.

Treatment and employment are determined without discrimination on the basis of race, color, age, national origin, sex, religion or disability.

  • A registered nurse performs a comprehensive nursing assessment, develops a plan of care and coordinates care with the physician and other team members. The nurse performs nursing procedures and assists patients and caregivers to become independent in care by instructing them in the disease process, medications and symptom management.

  • Our team of professionals provides comprehensive infusion services including hydration, antibiotics, chemotherapy, total parenteral nutrition, pain management, blood products, catheter care and enteral nutrition. Our infusion nurses promote an environment conducive to the successful completion of therapy and the safe delivery of care.

  • A registered clinical dietitian assesses the patient's nutritional needs based on medical diagnosis and current habits. The dietitian then teaches the patient or caregiver to achieve the defined nutritional goals.

  • Licensed clinical social workers (LCSWs and MSWs) participate in the development and implementation of the plan of care by assessing social factors that impede recovery and coordinate use of community resources and special support groups. Social workers also counsel patient or family members if there is a need related to loss of health and function and/or a need for psychiatric services.

  • A licensed physical therapist assesses the patient's ability to function in the home by evaluating strength, range of motion, endurance, coordination, balance, pain, posture and mobility. The therapist develops and implements a rehabilitation program that will help the patient maximize total function.

  • A licensed occupational therapist assesses the patient's ability to perform activities of daily living and fine motor functions, the need for adaptive equipment in the home and the patient's cognitive and perceptual function. The therapist develops a program geared to maximizing safety and independence.

  • A licensed speech-language pathologist assesses and treats speech, language and swallowing disorders. Specific treatment programs are developed for aphasia, voice disorders, apraxia, dyspraxia, dysphagia, speech and language in order to maximize the patient's communication and/or swallowing skills.

  • Home care aides provide or assist patients with such personal care as bathing, dressing, oral hygiene, meal preparation, feeding, walking and exercise. These services are designed to help patients regain maximum independence in providing self care.
