What is a Home Care Agency?

An organization that provides home care services, skilled nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, & personal care by home health aides as defined by Medicare at Medicare.gov. “A home health agency is a public agency or private organization, or a subdivision of such an agency or organization, which meets the following requirements: It is primarily engaged in providing skilled nursing services & other therapeutic services, such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, or speech-language pathology, medical social services, & home health aide services.

Benefits of Home Health

Home Health service is that component of comprehensive health care whereby services are provided to individuals & families in their place of residence for the purpose of promoting, maintaining, & restoring health & minimizing the effects of illness & disability. Services appropriate to the needs of the individual patient & family are planned, coordinated & made available by the agency. While the services provided are all focused to the attention of the individual patient & his/her recovery. There is also a focus on the family & all other “informal” family members who are engaged in the patient’s recovery. These individuals generally provide the 24-hour care & support necessary during the patient’s period of illness or dependency. Formal services from home health agencies can only supplement what family & friends provide. The greatest benefit of Home Health Care is that it allows the patient to recover in their preferred setting – their own home! Statistics show most people recover faster & stronger when allowed to recover at home.
