Home Health Care

Home health care is a range of medical and non-medical services that can be provided in a person’s home. It is designed to help people recover from an illness or injury, manage a chronic condition, or maintain their independence.

Home health care services

Skilled nursing care

Care provided by a registered nurse (RN) or licensed practical nurse (LPN) that may include wound care, medication management, IV therapy, and other specialized treatments.

Physical therapy

Physical therapy helps helps people regain strength and mobility after an injury or illness.

Occupational therapy (OT)

OT can help people regain the skills they need to perform everyday activities, such as dressing, bathing, and cooking, after an injury or illness.

Speech therapy

After injury, speech problems can range from mild articulation difficulties to severe aphasia (loss of speech). Home health speech therapy can help people with speech problems improve their communication skills. Home health speech therapy can also help people with dysphagia learn how to swallow safely and effectively.

Medical social work

This provides support and guidance to help people manage their care and navigate the healthcare system.

Home health aide care

This is non-medical care provided by a certified home health aide (CHA). It may include help with bathing, dressing, eating, and light housekeeping.

Some of the benefits of home health care

Convenience: Home health care allows people to receive care in the comfort of their own home.

Cost savings: Home health care can be less expensive than care in a hospital or skilled nursing facility.

Improved quality of life: Home health care can help people maintain their independence and quality of life.

Reduced stress on family caregivers: Home health care can provide support to family caregivers and help them reduce their stress.

Home health care can be provided on a short-term or long-term basis. Short-term home health care may be used after a hospital stay to help people recover and transition back to their home. Long-term home health care may be used to help people with chronic conditions manage their care and remain independent in their home.
