Health care in your residence is exactly thathealth, social and personal care services received in the place you call home, as opposed to receiving hospital-based care. With home health care, you can recover from an illness, be treated for a disability or rehabilitate from surgery safely, without the need to be hospitalized or sent to a care facility for extended periods of time.
Standard services of home health care include skilled nursing, physical, occupation and speech therapy, medical social work, and personal care assistance, though additional services are often available. Home health care agencies also vary in size and location. Every agency has unique service areas dependant on its capabilities and Medicare-certification status, and is also required to have on-call nurses whom are contacted when dealing with after-hours or weekend emergencies.
