Q. What are Home Health Services?

At-Home Health ServicesA. Home health services cover a wide range of personal care services performed within the patient’s home. It is a convenient and cost-effective alternative to receiving comparable care at a hospital, assisted living facility, nursing home, or rehabilitation clinic. These services may be covered by Medicare, Medicaid, or other insurance plans. In order to receive medical care, it is necessary to first receive a doctor’s referral. Non-medical care, such domiciliary care, does not require a referral, however. It is important to discuss you or your loved one’s needs to ensure that we can provide comprehensive care, such as in-home nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, medication management, IV therapy, wound care, and companionship.

We work closely with every patient to ensure that he or she receives the best registered nurse, licensed therapist, experienced caregiver, or companion to suit his or her needs.

Q. Who Would Benefit from Home Health Service?

Receiving home health services not only reduces the risk of readmissions to the hospital, it also improves a patient’s ability to heal and gives his or her loved ones the peace of mind and respite of knowing a qualified healthcare provider is available for their loved one.
