Sentara Home Care Services

Sentara Home Care Services provides a full spectrum of home care services to meet the individual needs of patients. In the past, many of our patients would have had to remain in the hospital for therapy. But today, the highly skilled team of clinicians with Sentara Home Care Services partners with individual physicians to coordinate the multiple therapies and services each patient may require - from skilled nursing care and infusion therapy to respiratory care and medical equipment. Our patients also benefit at home from much of the same advanced technology available in Sentara hospitals.

Plus, physicians, patients, and family members not only can have the ease of partnering with just one home care agency, but they can also benefit from the peace of mind knowing that agency is backed by Sentara, a health system nationally recognized for its excellence of care.

  • Greater Hampton Roads, including Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Portsmouth and Chesapeake
