Wound Care Home Services
There are many advantages to in-home wound care and if you or your loved one are located in the Mississippi delta area, Sunflower Home Health is the wound care provider for you. If you are looking to make sure that the environment that your family member is receiving treatment in is most conducive to their recovery, we strongly recommend in-home therapy. By being in familiar surroundings, patients have a much better outlook for recovery. In addition, they are able to resume normal activities much faster than if they were treated in a sterile, clinical environment.
Apart from the environment that they are in, one of the most important factors for the patient is the care they are receiving. At Sunflower Home Health, we are committed to providing high-quality care that provides substantial relief to our patients.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why would/should I choose home care?
A primary benefit of home health care is that it allows patients to receive personal care in the privacy and comfort of their own homes. For aging and homebound individuals, home care helps patients remain as functional and independent as possible, providing a much higher sense of security and dignity. Studies have shown that patients recuperating from illness, injury, or surgical procedures heal more quickly and more successfully when recovering at home versus in a medical facility.
2. What is the definition of homebound?
The patient is considered “homebound” under Medicare if the patient cannot leave home without “considerable and taxing effort”. Most patients have an injury or illness that makes it difficult to leave home; for example, if the patient requires the aid of supportive devices (wheelchair or walker)
3. How often are visits made?
Visits are scheduled based on the unique needs of a patient.
4. What about home medical equipment and supplies?
While Sunflower Home Health does not provide home health equipment, Sunflower Home Health can work with your physician to coordinate the delivery of home medical equipment, including wheelchairs, walkers, bedside commodes, bathroom safety equipment, oxygen, Nebulizers, or respiratory supplies.
5. How do I choose a home care agency?
Agencies differ in size, the geographic areas they are licensed to cover, philosophies on patient’s safety and providing quality patient care. One way to more easily compare home health agencies is by utilizing The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (“CMS”) Home Health Compare website. This website rates every Medicare-certified home health agency and assigns a quality of patient care star rating.
Home health agencies are assigned a rating from 1 to 5 stars, with 1 as the lowest score and 5 as the highest. Agencies get a higher star rating when they follow recommended care practices for more patients, and when more of their patients show improvement. Sunflower Home Health has a 5-star rating for quality of patient care which places Sunflower Home Health in the top 7% of all agencies in the nation.
