HOME HEALTH CARE
Home health care includes a wide range of health care services that can be given in a patient’s home for an illness or injury. Home health care is usually less expensive, more convenient, and as effective as care elsewhere such as, at times, in a hospital or skilled nursing facility (SNF).
Examples of skilled home health services include:
- Wound care for pressure sores or a surgical wound
- Patient and caregiver education
- Intravenous or nutrition therapy
- Monitoring serious illness and unstable health status
In general, the goal of home health care is to treat an illness or injury. Home health care helps you:
- Get better
- Regain your independence
- Become as self-sufficient as possible
- Maintain your current condition or level of function
- Slow decline
