Peoples Home Health Response to COVID-19

As always, the safety and well-being of our patients and the clinicians serving them is our primary concern.  We are taking many additional precautions to safeguard the health of our clinicians serving the community and using extra care to reduce their patient contact levels as recommended by the Center for Disease Control.

Our clinicians will continue to provide you quality compassionate care according to your plan of care.  They will visit on your usual schedule and are here for any questions or concerns you may have.  When your nurse or therapist arrives for their visit, we ask that there are as few people in the room as possible and that they sanitize their hands to reduce the spread of germs.  The CDC has provided us with resources to remain safe and healthy during this time.  View the Latest Updates. 

We are closely monitoring the latest COVID-19 statistics and advisories published by the Florida Department of Health.  You can view the latest reports here.

Thank you for your trust in us.  As conditions change, we will continue to provide additional updates and information.  If you have any questions, we are here for you at 850-696-0911.

We are here to assist those we serve throughout this critical time and continue providing exceptional quality care. Click here for a resource on how you and your family can stay well.
