Blount Memorial Home Services

In-home skilled care for residents of Blount, Knox, Loudon, Monroe and Sevier counties

Since 1989, Blount Memorial Home Services has delivered physician-ordered, skilled care and related home health services to people in East Tennessee. A physician referral is required to access our services, including:

Disease Management Programs: Home Services offers five patient education programs, which help patients better manage their own medical care and reduce the chance of re-hospitalization. Programs offered include:

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Dysphagia
  • Heart Failure
  • Pneumonia
  • Wound Care

Infusion Therapy: Skilled nurses work with the patient's infusion pharmacy to deliver intravenous fluids in the comfort and convenience of the patient's home.

Telemonitors: Home Services offers in-home electronic monitoring to qualifying patients. An easy-to-use, tabletop device connects patients to health care providers. This innovative system helps detect and prevent potential health problems by monitoring a patient's vital signs from home.

Coaguchek-S PT/INR: When a patient's physician has ordered nursing care and the patient is taking an anticoagulant such as Coumadin, nurses can perform a simple finger stick in order to gather essential information without a formal laboratory test.  This instant result allows nurses to contact the patient's physician and immediately adjust the medication when necessary.

Lifeline with AutoAlert: Blount Memorial Lifeline with AutoAlert is the only wireless medical alert pendant that can place a call for help automatically if a fall is detected. Lifeline with AutoAlert helps aging adults live independently; get assistance even if they can’t speak; summon help if they fall and can’t push the button because they are disoriented, immobilized, unconscious or have fallen on top of the pendant; alert neighbors, friends and family if they need assistance and connect immediately to emergency personnel.

Physical and Occupational Therapy: After illness, injury, joint replacement surgery or any surgical procedure, patients can continue the therapeutic care they were receiving at the hospital in the comfort of their home. Therapists also work with each patient's physician to create an in-home regime, which may include therapeutic strengthening exercises, instruction in the use of assistive devices, and gait, balance and safety training.

Speech-language Pathology: Our experienced speech-language pathologists evaluate and treat disorders of speech, language, cognition and swallowing.
