Health care in your home
Home health care is personalized healthcare provided in the comfort of your home by trained professionals who follow treatment orders from your physician. Being in a familiar setting, surrounded by family and friends, can make you or your loved one feel better during a time of illness or injury.
Who benefits from home health?
You or a loved one may benefit from receiving home health services in the following situations.
- Following a hospital stay, whether you are recovering from surgery or illness. If your plan for continued recovery includes care at home, your hospital stay may even be shortened.
- Changes in your health due to chronic conditions.
At these times, although your condition may not require admission to a medical facility, receiving medical support at home may provide the help and assurance you and your family members need.
