If given the choice of recuperating at home or in the hospital, most people would choose the familiar surroundings of their own home. Studies indicate that the comfort and security a patient finds at home maximizes the healing process. Home Health care gives patients the opportunity to remain at home and receive treatment under the supervision of their physician.
The patient's recovery depends greatly on the family working together with the health care team to promote a return to optimal health and/or independence.
Home Health care begins with a qualified medical professional evaluating and coordinating a plan of care.
