What is home health care?
Home health care provides medical services for individuals recovering from illness or injury in the comfort of their own home. Our skilled staff work with you and your doctor to develop a comprehensive health care plan to meet your individual needs. Our goal is to keep you out of the hospital and in your own home. Therefore, we will teach you how to recognize problems and potential side effects, and know what to do or whom to contact if they happen.
How often will my home health care visits be?
The frequency of your visits is based off your doctors orders and the assessment of our staff.
What is the difference between home health care and hospice?
Home health care provides treatment for illness, injury or a chronic condition with the goal of regaining your independence. Home health care can also include personal care services such as bathing and dressing.
Hospice care is designed to provide comfort to individuals facing a life-limiting illness. In addition, hospice provides counseling and spiritual services to the patient and their loved ones.
My doctor is ordering home health care for me, can I request A Loving Heart?
Yes! According to federal law, patients have the freedom to choose their health care provider.
Why should I choose home health?
Healthcare at home is more private and convenient. The risk of infection is minimized and home health services are usually more cost-effective than a hospital or skilled care facility stay. In addition, most patients prefer to receive care in the comfort and privacy of their own home.
