Horizon Home Health & Hospice has moved! They have recently moved from Weiser, ID to Fruitland, ID! Horizon just celebrated their grand opening with a ribbon cutting on October 4th, 2019.

Horizon Home Health & Hospice is a locally owned and family grown company. Horizon cares for individuals of all ages and in all stages of life, whether it is after a surgery, when an illness or health conditions require more assistance and when curing a disease of a loved one is no longer a realistic goal.

Michelle Merrick is the manager of the newest location in Fruitland. She has worked with Horizon for 3 years and has been in the nursing field for 15 years. Michelle started in the main office of Horizon eventually branching out to different positions within the company. She grew up in Payette, ID eventually moving away, but was excited about the opportunity to come back the area.

Horizon Home Health offers a lot of services such as; Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Bath aid services and Horizon will train and educate families and friends for safety and comfort of their loved ones. Horizon truly cares for the comfort of their clients, not only their clients but their client’s families also. They will follow up with the family for 1 year after they no longer need services, as well as provide 1 year of counseling to family members. Often clients that have been to Horizon for services will return if in need of more services because they truly appreciate and are grateful for Horizon.

They also take great care of their staff; they have only a 20% turnover compared to 50% of other companies in their field of service. 

Horizon is hiring for growth! A lot of the staff they have work in the community that they live in as it is a home based company. They come to their clients, so that they may be as comfortable in their own homes as possible. They are looking for Nurses, Therapists and home health aides!

You can contact Horizon at (208) 549- 2104 or stop by their office 314 SW 3rd St. Fruitland, ID 83619
