Home Mental Health Care

The Baptist Louisville Home Health Agency offers mental health services to homebound individuals who have recently been in the hospital or are having increased symptoms of a psychiatric illness. Our mental health nurses have specialized knowledge, skills and abilities and can provide the following services:

  • assessment of a patient's response to medication and intervention if side effects occur,
  • counseling patients suffering from depression caused by a chronic medical problem, pain, or grief and loss issues, and
  • teaching patients and care givers about mental health issues, symptoms and medications.

Your physician or psychiatrist can order a mental health nurse to work with you. You may also receive home services from therapists, aides, social workers and the chaplain, if needed.

For more information or to make a referral, call (502) 454-5656 or (800) 248-0289.
