Home health care
describes a wide variety of health and health related services provided in a home setting to maintain or restore an individual’s health and well-being.
Services provided by Home Health agencies include skilled nursing, medical social work, intravenous (IV) therapy, physical therapy, speech language pathology, occupational therapy, home medical equipment, and personal care services.
Care is provided in the comfort and security of an individual’s home through a licensed agency gives individuals, their family, and friends, a sense of control and peace of mind. While it helps keep families together and promotes independence and patient dignity.
In-home health providers compassionately care for individuals of all ages, from prenatal care to geriatric care. The services provide the greatest degree of independence, freedom and dignity possible for patients, allowing them to remain at home, close to their family and friends, in familiar surroundings.
