What is Home Health Care?
Home health care consists of a diversity of medical and personal services administered in your own home, giving you the opportunity to conserve your independence and receive care in a familiar environment.
What are the advantages of receiving care in a home-setting?

Staying at home while receiving personal attention enhances your well-being and, as a result, prolonging your quality of life. Our caregivers are sensitive to maintaining emotional stability, nutrition, fall prevention and honing mental capacities.

Seniors are assured they are in their usual surroundings and are in touch with all their belongings throughout their lifetime.

Who qualifies for home health services?
    The answer varies on every patient and situation, but anyone who has a new medical diagnosis, medication or a recent hospitalization may qualify. A home health evaluation will be conducted by a registered nurse to determine if you are eligible. After the evaluation, we will be in touch with you to confirm on a scheduled visit to your home.

    If you or your love ones or your friend is under Medicare there are 2 qualifying homebound criteria to be met:

  • The patient, because of illness or injury, needs the aid of supportive devices such as crutches, canes, wheelchairs, and walkers; requires the use of special transportation; or the assistance of another person in order to leave their place of residence; OR have a condition such that leaving his/her home is medically contraindicated, AND
  • There must exist a normal inability to leave the home, AND if the patient does leave the home, it requires a considerable and taxing effort.

    If the patient does in fact leave the home, the patient may nevertheless be considered homebound if the absences from the home are infrequent or for periods of relatively short duration, or are attributable to the need to receive health care treatment.
