What is Home Health Care?

The care available through a certified home health agency generally includes services which aid in recovery, rehabilitation, recuperation and health education. Skilled nurses and other health care professionals provide a wide range of services which allows patients to stay in their homes, preserving their independence and dignity, and enhancing their quality of life.

Who Should Use Home Health Care?

Home health care is available to individuals of all ages with a wide range of health conditions.  However the need for home care is usually triggered by one of the following situations:

  • Being released from the hospital following a sudden event such as a heart attack, stroke or injury.
  • An ongoing health issue which requires a greater level of care that is currently available in your home.
  • You find it increasingly difficult to take care of yourself and your home.

Who is Eligible for Home Health Care?

Our Home Nursing team will work with your physician to develop a personalized in-home care plan.  We will contact your insurance carrier to determine what services are covered by your health plan.
To be eligible for Home health care under the Medicare plan you must be:

  • An eligible Medicare beneficiary.
  • In need of skilled services in the home.
  • Under a plan of care approved and established by a physician.
  • Homebound, requiring reasonable and taxing effort to leave home and unable to drive yourself.

Home Nursing accepts Medicare, Medicaid, Workers Compensation, private insurance and private pay.
