Home health care is a wide range of health care services that can be given in your home for an illness or injury. Home health care is usually less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective as care you get in a hospital or skilled nursing facility. Many patients and their families also prefer remaining in the home versus institutional settings. Furthermore, studies have shown that patients recover faster in the home.
HomeCare reduces the strain caused by excessive hospital or nursing home bills during an illness or disability. HomeCare continues to grow as the demand for cost effective services in the home increases. The growth is due in part to the aging population and shortened hospitalizations. Today, services that previously required hospitalization are routinely delivered in the home.
