Sac County Health Services offers a cost-effective and satisfying service. People prefer home care following illness or hospitalization because:

  • Keeps families together
  • Supports independence
  • Is more cost-effective than other forms of healthcare
  • Prevents or postpones custodial care
  • Involves the individual and family in services that are delivered.

Clients can receive various home health care services in the comfort of their own homes for acute or chronic conditions. Home health care can benefit people of all ages. Our staff of registered nurses works closely with the client’s personal physician.


Referrals may be made by an agency, a doctor, a friend, anyone who is concerned, or by personal request.

FOR HOME CARE, YOU HAVE A CHOICE! But you have to ask for it.
