What is Home Health Care?
The phrase "home care" encompasses a wide range of skilled health and social services. These services are delivered in the place of residence to recovering, disabled, and chronically or terminally ill persons in need of medical, nursing, social, or therapeutic treatment and/or assistance with the essential activities of daily living.
Who Needs Home Care?
Generally, home care is appropriate for those who prefer to stay at home but need ongoing care that cannot easily or effectively be provided solely by family and friends. Electing to live independent, non-institutionalized lives, older people are increasingly opting for home care services. Adults who are disabled or recuperating from acute illness are choosing skilled home care whenever possible. As hospital stays decrease, increasing numbers of patients need these special services upon returning home. Skilled home care makes it possible for many to receive safe, effective care in the comfort of their own homes and avoid leaving their homes altogether.
