In your time of need, we’re right where you need us.
When patients leave the hospital and return home, they go from highly supportive medical environments with physicians, nurses, aides, and other professionals, to non-medical environments with informal caregiver support. Patients and caregivers must struggle to absorb confusing medical information before leaving the hospital and often providers have incomplete understandings of home environments and caregiver capabilities. Patients are largely left to themselves, expected to manage their medical conditions on their own. It is a daunting task.
This is where Pemi-Baker Hospice & Home Health (PBH&HH), can assist; supplementing visits from home care nurses, physical therapists and licensed nursing assistants.
What is the Meaning of Home Health Care?
- Home health care is a wide range of health care services that can be given in your home for an illness or injury.
- Home health care is usually less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective as care you get in a hospital or skilled nursing facility.
Patient safety at home is as important as patient safety in hospitals. Unsafe conditions in the home can lead to unnecessary or avoidable, expensive, re-hospitalizations. Your PBH&HH team will be a bridge of communication and care between you and your physician. Receiving home care decreases costs, improves health outcomes, and reduces hospital stays. PBH&HH helps support your family by teaching you to properly care for wounds, follow medication regimens correctly, manage durable medical equipment and keep your house free of hazards.
What Can I Expect From A Home Health Care Visit?
- Checking your blood pressure, temperature, heart rate and breathing.
- Making sure you understand the purpose of your medicines.
- Teaching you or your caregiver to care for a wound or IV.
- Creating an exercise plan to build your strength and improve balance/walking.
- Helping you assess your pain and monitor your food intake.
PBH&HH’s primary goal is to discharge you to self or family care and avoid subsequent hospitalizations. We want you to feel confident and comfortable not only in your home but with the goal of returning back to your normal daily routines in your community. PBH&HH provides services to residents who reside in Grafton and Belknap counties, but we also accept referrals in other counties upon request. Call or contact us today to learn more.

Pemi-Baker Community Health and Mid-State Health Center are excited to announce a new collaboration to enhance access to services in the community.
Pemi-Baker Community Health Changing Name to Pemi-Baker Hospice and Home Health
For fifty-five years, Pemi-Baker Community Health has followed their mission to improve the health and wellbeing of the communities they serve by providing excellence in health care services in your home and at their facility at 101 Boulder Point Drive in Plymouth. With more than 70 employees and volunteers, they have grown to meet the needs of 28 surrounding towns, and as their new name and logo show, they are focusing on Hospice, Palliative and Home Health Care moving forward.
Pemi-Baker Hospice & Home Health is pleased to announce that their outpatient physical therapy (PT) and occupational therapy (OT) services will now be overseen by Mid-State Health starting January 1st, 2022. Pemi-Baker will maintain their offices at Boulder Point with a new entrance and will be serving patients as far north as Benton, Lincoln, Franconia, Sugar Hill, Bethlehem and Littleton. Their Doctors, Nurses, LNA’s, Chaplains, Social Workers, Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapists will continue to provide excellent services in the home setting. They are also pleased their current Senior Director of Home Health, Palliative Care, & Hospice, Danielle Paquette-Horne RN, is taking the position of Executive Director.
“With the growing need for hospice and home health in central and northern New Hampshire, this transition will allow us to focus our resources and expand our services to the patients and families who are in need of professional home healthcare,” said Danielle Paquette-Horne.
Mid-State Health Center launches Outpatient Physical and Occupational Therapy as a new service.
Starting January 1, 2022, Mid-State will begin offering physical and occupational therapy services under its umbrella of primary care services. Through a collaboration with Pemi-Baker Hospice and Home Health, Pemi-Baker’s trusted and skilled Outpatient Physical and Occupational Therapy team will be joining Mid-State Health Center to provide PT/OT services. This transition will further enhance Mid-State’s integrated approach to health care while providing individuals in need of physical and occupational therapy with the same high-quality care, provided by the same team, in the same familiar space.
Dr. Robert MacLeod, Mid-State CEO says, “We are committed to providing health care services that meet the needs of the whole person. Bringing PT/OT services under our umbrella is another step for Mid-State to strengthen our integrated care model, while allowing Pemi-Baker to deliver services to patients where they need it most in the home care setting.”
The two organizations will be working closely over the upcoming months to ensure a seamless transition for all. To learn more about this transition, please visit midstatehealth.org/OPT.
