Health Coach at Home

Our unique Health Coaching model focuses on your health issues and goals and provide motivation, encouragement, and health education along with therapy and nursing care. The Health Coach at Home model uses Motivational Interviewing¹ (MI) as a way to empower the patient to make healthy lifestyle changes. Health coaches emphasize the importance of managing the whole person.
