What is Home Health Care?

Home healthcare is part-time professional healthcare for patients of all ages, under physician direction, provided to the patient in the home setting. Many patients benefit from being in their own homes surrounded by friends and loved ones during their recovery process.

Essential components of home healthcare include teaching the patient self-care, securing necessary equipment and medical supplies, instructing the family in the physical care of the patient and helping family members cope with the challenges that result from the patient’s illness.

Home healthcare is recognized as a less expensive and increasingly important alternative to hospitalization or care in a nursing home. Home healthcare is a more effective way to provide health services in a comfortable home environment to patients who do not need 24-hour professional supervision.
