Care for the Mind as Well as the Body

In addition to caring for a patient’s body, Empath Home Health’s Behavioral Health Program helps patients experiencing depression, anxiety and dementia-related issues or behavioral issues related to their disease diagnosis. Addressing these issues can be the bridge to keep these patients in the comfort of their own home.
