Who are Signature’s in-home medical staff?2019-12-19T23:22:16-05:00

Signature provides licensed medical providers and non-medical staff. An in-home nurse is the name given to a well-educated, well-trained, and certified registered nurse (RN) or licensed vocational nurse (LVN). These are skilled, vetted professionals who provide medical assistance, treatments, and therapy to you in the comfort of your own home, family member’s home, or an assisted living facility, preventing placement in a nursing home or a long-term care facility.

Signature also offers helpful services from physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech pathology therapists, medical social workers, and certified nurses’ aides. All can have a vital role to play in caring for you as whole person.
