Is Home Health CareRight for Me?

Home health care is appropriate for individuals who are “home-bound” or have difficulty leaving their home without assistance from a person or device (such as a cane or walker) and are in need of skilled nursing services.

If you are unsure if home health care is right for you, just ask your physician or ask the hospital operator to page your discharge planner.

When Will Home Health CareServices Begin?

Your doctor will determine when home health care services should start. Usually, home health care starts after you have been discharged from a hospital visit or as you have a need for care and can no longer feasibly make it to regular medical appointments. A registered nurse will contact you to schedule a home health care visit.

How Long Will EachVisit Last?

The first home health care visit by the nurse will last at least one hour. Subsequent nursing or therapy visits may require more or less time, depending on your treatment plan.

How Much DoesHome Health Care Cost?

How Can You Assist Me at Home?

A home health aide can assist you with grooming and light chores around your home. Home health care will verify if home health aide services are covered by your insurance policy.

Will My Doctor Get a Report?

The home health care team works closely with your physician to plan your care and monitor your progress. Your nurse will contact your physician with any laboratory results, medication changes or alterations in your health status.

Why Home Health & Hospice?

Home care is often a less stressful environment for patients than the sterile setting of a hospital or nursing home. Patients can be comfortable in their own homes while receiving excellent medical care.
