YOU HAVE QUESTIONS, WE HAVE ANSWERS
What is Home Health Care?
Our services adhere to a care plan established by your physician and coordinated by our licensed and qualified staff. It is designed to quicken recovery and improve self-sufficiency. We give our clients the tools and resources they need to live their lives to the fullest.
How is Home Health Care Different from Home Care?
Simply put, Home Health Care provides clinical services, whereas Home Care offers strictly non-clinical help with daily living. For instance, Home Health Care services are administered at home by a health care professional, like a Registered Nurse or a Therapist, and are often prescribed as part of a care plan. It includes medical testing, medication administration, and different types of therapy, including physical, occupational, and speech-language.
Home Care, on the other hand, focuses on providing the elderly with assistance in their daily activities. It involves strictly non-medical personal care such as bathing, dressing, meal prep, medication reminders, and assistance with transportation and mobility. Home care aides are trained to provide companionship and help the elderly with light housework.
Home Health Care is also different from Hospice care which offers assistance to individuals to achieve the best quality of life during a terminal illness.
Who needs Home Health Care?
In other words, the individual must be certified as homebound by a physician who manages and authorizes home health care services. The prescribed home health care service must be appropriate and necessary for the continued treatment and management of the patient’s medical condition. Individuals in need of skilled nursing service or therapy (physical, occupational and/or speech) are also eligible for home healthcare.
What does 'Homebound Status' mean?
While the “Homebound status” indicates that it is challenging for the individual to leave home, it does not prevent the person from leaving home for medical treatments that cannot be provided at home. A “homebound person” is also allowed brief and infrequent absences from the home for non-medical reasons, such as to attend church or family events.
Under Medicare, patients who are home-bound are eligible for Homecare to help manage a change of condition or acute situation such as new diagnosis, administration of new medication or manage an exacerbation of the illness, accidental falls, sudden infections and changes in cognition and function.

Who pays for Home Health Care?
Home healthcare services such as nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech-language pathology services are covered under these insurances for as long as the individual is eligible and certified as “homebound”. Some states have additional programs that may cover home health care services not provided by Medicare.
Private Insurance and managed care plans may charge a deductible or co-pay for home care services. Occasionally, it may be necessary for patients to pay out of pocket to their home healthcare provider.
