What is home health care?
Home health care can include a variety of skilled services (nursing, physical occupational, speech, certified nursing assistant, social worker, counselor and caseworker) who can work with individuals seeking services in their home in order to promote increased independence with daily meaningful tasks, maintain or restore physical, mental or emotional health and well-being. The goal of home health care is to provide the skills and education that the individual and their caregivers need to be able to care for themselves and remain in their home safety.
How can I get a home health care referral?
Home health care can be initiated after a recent visit to an individual’s primary care provider, after a discharge from an inpatient, acute care, skilled nursing care or long term care setting. A face to face summary and letter must be provided as well as a prescription for the need for home health care services.
Who can receive home health care services?
Home health care services are designated for those individuals who are deemed by a medical provider to be home bound. This means that it is a great or taxing effort for the individual to leave the home AND/OR it would require two or more persons to assist that person to exit the home. Home care services do allow for individuals to leave.
When do home health services begin?
A nurse or therapist (PT/OT/ST) will contact the patient within 48 hours of discharge and/or referral completion.>
How long does home care last?
Every person and care plan is individualized; however, often home health care does not last longer than three months. Home care services are based upon a person’s skilled need for services based upon physician, nursing and therapists’ evaluation.
