Home Health & Hospice
Home Health Agencies - Home health agencies may offer a wide range of services, including physician care, or may just offer a few services, such as basic nursing care. This also may include non-medical assistance in the client’s home, including help with cooking, cleaning, bathing, dressing, transportation, and companionship. Most home health agencies assemble a care team for the patient based on his or her needs. Because home health agencies are responsible for their personnel, they assume liability for all care. Home health agencies are usually available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Home Care Agencies provide personal services to clients in their residence. Home health care agencies may be Medicare-certified.
