Total parenteral nutrition (TPN) and enteral nutrition therapies are prescribed in cases where the patient cannot receive adequate nutrition by mouth. With these therapies, nutrition is accomplished via a tube placed either into the gastrointestinal tract below the area of the disease, or into the veins.

A registered nurse specializing in nutrition support first consults with the referring physician, then provides personalized training for the patient and family members who may actually administer the treatment. Prior to the start of home nutrition therapy, supplies and medications are delivered to provide a smooth transition. Horizon Healthcare Services also provides instruction in nutrition therapies for nursing home staffs. This one-to-one interaction with physician, home health nurse, patient, and patient family provides continuity in the plan of care.

Horizon Healthcare Services provides all nutrients, equipment, and materials, which the patient may store and use as directed at home.
