We’re a Medicare-certified home health care provider.
How can I get home health care?
Home health care must be ordered by a Nevada Board Certified MD (Doctor of Medicine) or DO (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine). Referrals can be made via a doctor’s office, hospital, clinic, or anywhere else an MD or DO practices.
What is the process like for getting home health care?
In order for a patient to sign on, Sonoma Home Health requires 3 things:
- The MD/DO order for home health
- Patient information (such as name, address, and phone number)
- Medical history and physical
What can I expect once it starts?
Each patient receives intermittent skilled care; the frequency is determined based on a care plan that’s determined after an evaluation has been completed. During each visit, the patient will be visited by clinicians (skilled nurses) for 45 minutes – 1 hour.
What will the patient or family member be responsible for?
Personal care such as bathing, dressing, and food preparation. Home health can provide home health aides on a limited basis depending on diagnosis and need, but it isn’t long-term and must be in conjunction with a need for skilled nursing based on a doctor’s referral.
Medication. Prescriptions are not covered by home health.
How long has Sonoma Home Health been serving Las Vegas?
Is the agency an approved Medicare provider?
Is the quality of care certified by a national accrediting body?

How Does Sonoma Home Health screen their staff?
In the state of Nevada, home health care providers must complete 75 hours of Medicare-certified training. Because we’re committed to client care, we go above and beyond that by recruiting clinicians with over 3 years’ experience in the field. In addition, each care provider we hire goes through a reference check of prior employers, criminal background checks, 90-day and annual evaluations, monthly training, and more.
Are the home health workers insured while coming to my home?
Yes. All staff members are fully insured. In addition, all are fully bonded against theft.
Does Sonoma provide 24 hour care?
Who pays for home health care?
