Home health care is a type of service that is offered within your own home to improve your quality of life, health and well-being and avoid the need for placement in a long-term care community.
Home health care is skilled nursing or rehabilitation services provided within a person’s home by licensed professional nurses and therapists. Typically home health care is short-term while an individual recovers from surgery, illness or injury or learns to maintain a chronic disease such as diabetes. Here are some examples of home health care services:
- Wound and skin care
- Medication management
- Pain management
- Injections, IV therapies and lab draws
- Physical, occupational and speech therapy
- Management of chronic diseases, such as COPD, diabetes and congestive heart failure
- Nutritional guidance
- Remote monitoring
