Home Health Services
Serving Westmoreland County, Indiana County, Allegheny County, and Southwestern PA since 1995, The Thorne Group has helped thousands of area residents maintain their independence with assistance from our dedicated nurses, therapists, and aides.
Since its beginning, The Thorne Group has been a large scale provider of home health services for the Area Agency on Aging and the Pennsylvania Department of Aging.
Over 1,000 patients per year receive some form of home health services or home care from our agency.
The Thorne Group’s staff of professionals is experienced in home health care and committed to providing you with the best care possible. In addition, our agency is locally-owned, family-operated and free standing, not part of a chain.
All of this means that quality control of the services you receive is The Thorne Group’s most important goal.
Located in Youngwood, PA, The Thorne Group is Medicare certified and state licensed. Caregivers are carefully screened with background checks, employment verifications, references, and skills tests. All agency staff is supervised by our administrator, a registered nurse with over 20 years experience in home health care.
Of course, services from The Thorne Group are tailored to your needs with an individualized plan of care designed to optimize your mental and physical health and welfare.
