4 Surprising Home Health Care Facts

Home health care is something that we truly wish no one needed—but is sometimes essential. We all understand that things just…happen, and it’s important to know that you have us as a friend in your corner to help you get through this time. Here are four facts about home health care that you may not have realized:

  1. Home health care is not the same as in-home care. We know this may sound like a play-on-words, but it’s not. Home health care is when a licensed medical professional is hired to come to your home and help you heal. This is the category we fall into. An in-home professional is someone who is there, often specifically for an elderly person who may need a little extra help and supervision with the day-to-day tasks and schedules. This service may not be medically necessary, but it is most definitely providing companionship. 
  2. Nurse care is available outside of the hospital. Here’s a good framework for you if you’re considering having us but aren’t sure if we can help: If it can be done by a nurse, we can provide aid in your home! Whether it’s diet evaluation, physical therapy, IV injections, wound dressing, or whatever else may be needed, as long as a nurse can provide it, we can come to your home to make your life easier. 
  3. Home health care isn’t only for the elderly. Whatever treatment is needed in the hospital, as long as your physician releases you for inpatient care, we can come to the comfort of your home to continue on the road to recovery. Many times, those with tight schedules can opt for something like home care because it provides flexibility and privacy. 
  4. Lastly, home health care is money-wise and comfortable. The home health care we provide is considered to be more cost-effective, more comfortable, and just as effective as the care you would receive from a hospital or nursing facility. The beauty of home health care is that it saves your time while providing you with comfort and effective care from your own home.
