What is Home Health Care?
Home Health Care refers to medical services provided by a licensed medical professional in your home for intermittent care. It provides an alternative to using residential, long-term, or institutional-based nursing care. Home Health Care encompasses a wide range of services that are provided to recovering, disabled, and chronically or terminally ill persons in their homes.
Generally, Home Health Care is appropriate whenever a person is confined to his/her home but needs ongoing care that cannot easily or effectively be provided by family and friends.
