Providing Expert In-Home Medical Care

Ohio Valley Home Health was founded in 1991 to provide home health care to patients in Southern Indiana. Our founder, Malinda Kost-Shaffer, RN, was inspired by her passion for providing expert in-home medical care with an emphasis on respect and dignity.

We add to these values with the acronym C.A.R.E, to help distinguish the services that patients, families and referral sources should expect from Ohio Valley Home Health.


Our staff ensure strong communication with physicians, discharge planners, case managers, patients, and families.  In doing so, patients will be properly cared for and our goal of providing excellent continuity of care will be achieved.


We understand that positive thinking and teamwork produce fantastic results. When seeing patients, personal feelings and frustrations are left at the door. Our staff’s positive attitudes are contagious!   


Treating people with the upmost respect and dignity regardless of race, color, gender, age, ancestry, religion, disability, gender identity, genetic information or sexual orientation will lead to happy patients and will always produce positive outcomes.   

Exceptional Care

We make every effort to be the best in our industry and it starts with our staff.  The little things do matter; asking if we can do anything before leaving a visit, bringing in a patient’s mail or taking time to look at pictures of grandkids makes all the difference.
