She considered it her purpose to help people and treated everyone like family. Our staff are carefully selected for their professional expertise, integrity, and most important, their willingness to treat our patients like family. They are simply the best in the business.

The Federal Government guarantees your right to choose your home care provider. If your physician orders Home Health, the hospital must show you a list of providers from which you may choose. Choose Gallagher Home Health Services. We promise that you will receive excellent care in the privacy of your own home by professional staff that will treat you like family.
Gallagher Home Care is different from Home Health because the care is usually non-medical in nature and does not require a physician’s order. You may need these services when your health insurance will no longer cover personal care or when you need extended hours of care in order to safely stay at home.
Home Care covers the provision of services you usually pay for privately in your own home, Personal Care Home or Assisted Living Apartment. These services may include:
- Home Health Aides
- Household Assistance
Some tasks which you may request our staff to assist you or a family member with may include any of the following Personal Care including but not limited to:
- Assistance with Ambulation
- Assistance with Transferring
- Meal Preparation
- Linen Changes
- Light Housekeeping
If you require services not listed above, just call our office at 412-279-7800 and we will discuss your needs with you and if required, provide a free consultative nursing assessment to determine the best plan of care for you.
