What is “home health?”
Home Health provides medical treatment for an illness or injury, with the goal of helping you recover, regain your independence and become as self-sufficient as possible. Home health can also help you live with a chronic condition, like heart disease, dementia, or diabetes.
How do I know if home health is for me?
If you are in need of short-term medical support or relief because of a serious illness, injury, or surgery, home health can make your life easier. Home health can be a great benefit for you and your loved one while they are recovering from an illness or surgery. Our goal is to provide quality medical care in a comfortable and convenient home setting for maximum recovery results.
Do I qualify for home health care?
To qualify for home health services, a patient must:
- Be “homebound” or have a normal inability to leave home without considerable assistance
- Be under the care of a physician
- Require the skills of a nurse on an intermittent basis and/or require the skills of physical therapy, occupational therapy and/or speech therapy
More detailed information about eligibility is available in The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services guide, “Medicare and Home Health Care” (PDF).
How often will my home health visits be?
Our home health visits – and the services we provide – are based on your doctor’s orders, ongoing assessments and the directives in your personal care plan. Your doctor may change your plan by increasing or decreasing the number of visits or services provided in order to provide you with the best home healthcare for your needs.
