Hertford-Gates Home Health is now using The Teaching Book system to teach caregivers and patients.

Hertford-Gates Home Health

The mission statement of the Hertford-Gates Home Health Agency is to protect and promote public health and quality of life to citizens in the community through home health services.  The service area currently includes Hertford County, Gates County, Bertie County and a portion of Northampton County.  The Hertford-Gates Home Health Agency is the only area home health agency accredited by the Joint Commission for the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) as well as the only Medicare certified agency with offices located in Hertford and Gates Counties.  The Agency was created by the Public Health Authority in 1973 when the need for these services in both counties was identified. To qualify for Home Health care, a client must be under the care of a physician, need skilled nursing care and meet homebound requirements of the insurance source.  Current services offered are skilled nursing, physical therapy,  medical social services, and home health aide services. Occupational therapy is offered in Bertie and Hertford counties.
