What is Home Health
EXCELLENT CARE IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME
Home healthcare encompasses a wide range of medical care and assistance, the goal being to restore each patient to full health and independence. A team of skilled professionals and administrators provides specialized care within the patients’ homes under the direction of a physician. Services may include nursing care, rehabilitative therapy and assistance with personal care. Physicians often order home care after hospitalization or after a period of general mental instability.

Home care can benefit patients in many ways:
Quicker recovery time is in the home setting.
Convenience of regularly scheduled visits without leaving home.
Privacy of care in the home rather than an office or exam room.
Comfort of being in a familiar and safe place.
Cost effective when compared with long-term hospitalization or nursing home stay.
