Primary Care Services
When the need for primary care arises, and you or your loved one cannot travel to a doctor’s office, there is never a more pressing time to expect and receive a new way of receiving clinical expertise in the home. That’s why AccentCare Southeastern Health Care at Home New Directions primary care provides all of these things and more.
Trust when you choose New Direction primary care, you have chosen excellence. As the population of US citizens over the age of 65 increases, illnesses and functional limitations often make it difficult and taxing to get to planned medical appointments. This often results in missed appointments, which can lead to unwanted emergency room visits or hospital stays.

These personalized home-based visits allow the provider to spend more time on your unique needs and they bring comprehensive care right to your home.
