Home Health Services

WHAT IS HOME HEALTH SERVICE?

A range of services provided to older adults, in their home, to help them maintain their independence, dignity and choice.  Services may be available on a private-pay basis or through publicly-funded programs. 

HOME HEALTH CARE is recognized as an increasingly important alternative to hospitalization or care in a nursing home for patients who do not need 24 hour / day professional supervision.  Many find it possible to remain at home for the entire duration of their illness or at least to shorten their hospital stay.  In many cases re-admission to the hospital can be prevented or delayed.  A variety of health services are provided in a home health care program in the patient’s home, under the direction of a physician.
