HealthStar Home Health is proud to announce the launch of a new website and an initiative with First Nations Home Health – Minnesota’s premier provider of home health services for Native American communities.
First Nations Home Health emerged as a response to community need to provide culturally relevant services to underserved populations. What began in 2003 in Minneapolis as a handful of caregivers has grown to a team including nursing & therapy staff and administrative employees serving communities in Minnesota, Wisconsin and New Mexico.
Our mission is to provide unparalleled public health care services while respecting the unique needs of our culturally diverse clientele through stewardship, honor-driven values, and a genuine desire to serve. One way we fulfill our mission is to serve communities by empowering people with mobility, cognitive and sensory disabilities live more independent lives at home. We also help the Native American communities we serve by identifying and focusing on common health issues such as heart disease and diabetes.
It is extremely difficult to care for a senior loved one at home and we understand how overwhelming it can be. First Nations Home Health serves the Native American population with an approach that is culturally sensitive to the unique and ethnic needs of the communities. Our services are specifically designed to enhance the health and well-being of those living on and off the reservations supported by First Nations Home Health. Here is just a sampling of what we offer:
Home Health Care Services
- Skilled Services
- Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
- Behavioral Nursing
- Private Duty Nursing
Mental Health Services
- Children’s Therapeutic Services and Supports (CTSS)
- Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services (ARMHS)
Personal Care Services
Home and Community Based Services
- Companion Care
We are proud to say we hire from within the community whenever possible and complete a full background study on each in-home caregiver, as well as a face-to-face interview, reference checks and competency evaluation. Once on board, all employees are provided training and many are trained at the home health aid level. Our team of caregivers, nurses and case managers consistently provide services that allow your aging loved ones to stay at home in familiar cultural surrounding, develop good health habits and reduce hospitalizations. With skilled professionals who provide a broad range of quality programs and services, our goal is to improve the health status of Native Americans who experience an unusually high rate of preventable illnesses.
At First Nations Home Health, we seek to understand and address the key issues that affect the health of individuals and families in the Native American community, providing culturally competent health care services, and engaging in prevention and health education initiatives. We deliver care with integrity, compassion, respect, and dignity. We look forward to serving you.
