Home Health Care
What is home health care?
- Home health care services are designed to help a patient achieve improved health, safety, and independence without leaving the convenience and comfort of home. These services include skilled nursing, therapy, education, rehabilitation, home health aide services, and medical social worker assistance for community resources and support groups.
- Medicare covers skilled home care services at 100% with no co-payment required for patients with a physician’s order or documented physical difficulty leaving the home. (For example, patients may drive short distances infrequently for medically necessary trips to the doctor or pharmacy, but Medicare does not cover home health care for patients who leave the home frequently for work or social events.)
- We form a cooperative partnership with your physician. During your initial assessment, our nurses and therapists will begin to develop a care plan unique to your health needs. Your physician will then review the plan and make any changes to ensure that the care you receive produces the best possible outcome.
- Visits last anywhere from 30 to 120 minutes, depending on the needs of the patient. The frequency of visits per week is determined on an individual basis after you begin with A Care Connection. We understand that every patient has unique health care needs and tailor our care plans accordingly.
