What is Home Health Care?  

        Home care is health care service that is provided where the patient lives. The purpose of home care is to restore, or maintain a patient’s health and reduce the effects of disease or disability. Nursing can be delivered in the patients’ homes. This allows them to feel more comfortable and less anxious. 

       Patients can receive home care whether they live in their own homes, assisted living facilities, with or without family members. Specialty therapists from physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, and respiratory therapy departments often make regular home visits, depending on a patient’s specific needs. General nursing care is provided by both registered and licensed practical nurses; however, there are also nurses who are clinical specialists in psychiatry, and cardiology who may provide care when necessary. Home health aides are similar to those of nurses’ aides in the hospital. They provide what is called personal care in domestic settings.

Q: What is the background check of the staff?

All our caregivers have gone through preemployment screening and are bonded and insured. We provide vigorous hiring standards to ensure patients receive the highest quality of care possible.    

Q: Do you actually provide care in assisted living facilities?    

A: Assisted Living is designed for seniors that require some assistance with activities of daily living and wish to live as independently as possible. People sometimes discover that the assistance provided in an assisted living facility is not enough to enable them to remain independent. In these cases you are allowed to hire private help in an assisted living facility – or nursing home for that matter.    

Q: Can this help my parents conserve the assets they have worked all their lives to build?    

A: Yes. Any assets a person spends for their own care is that much less that will be available for the government, through Medicaid or taxes, to take away. Most families would rather see those assets spent keeping their elderly family members at home and independent rather than have them taken away to reimburse the government or be taxed as inheritance.
