UnityPoint at Home - Peoria

UnityPoint at Home - Peoria takes care of you or your loved one in the comfort of your own home. Nurses are on call 24 hours a day to answer your questions and, if needed, make a home visit.

Benefits of Home Healthcare:

  • Familiar surroundings with family and friends
  • Less expensive than hospital care
  • Lower risk of infection
  • Avoid early nursing home placement

If you and your doctor decide that home healthcare is right for you, a registered nurse will visit you after you go home from the hospital (or your doctor's office). The nurse works with your doctor to plan the treatment that is best for you, and visits you as often as your doctor decides.
