Things have changed. A lot of the health care treatment and nursing care that used to require a stay in a hospital or nursing home can now be done in your home.
Patients who choose home health care usually pay less than they would for an institution, but that's not the biggest advantage. Most of these patients enjoy the comfort and independence of staying in the familiar surroundings of their own homes. They usually get to stay close to family and friends, and benefit from their support. They stay as self sufficient as possible.
But choosing a home health care agency is an important decision. You have the right as a consumer to choose the service you want, but you'll need to know everything you can before making that decision.
Remember, always look for an agency you can trust and have confidence in. Look for experience. Compassion. A professional attitude.
We have lots of webpages and links that deal with the questions you might be asking. You might be looking for help about the kinds of home health care agencies, or what Medicare pays towards this health care, or perhaps, you want to locate an agency in your county or city.
Whether you're new to Home Health Care or have years of experience, there's always more to learn about how it works and what kind of help is available. Explore the links on this page and you'll be on your way. Good luck to you and your loved one!
