FirstCare is locally owned and operated. We are proud of the more than 10 years we have served our patients in Lincoln and in the surrounding communities. At FirstCare Home Health, we establish a close working relationship with each of our patients. We will provide a free consultation visit to your home or nursing facility at your request to give you more information about available services.We assess your medical needs as well as the assistance your family member needs to help you “get along” in your everyday life.
Once we plan a program of assistance that suits the patient’s lifestyle, we assign a Registered Nurse (RN) Case Manager to coordinate your loved one’s care. The Case Manager communicates the patient’s needs, concerns and plan of care with the aides on the team, skilled nurses that see them, any therapists that are involved, physicians and designated family members.
