Home Health Care

What is Certified Home Health Care?

When you are recovering from a serious illness or injury, wouldn’t it be nice to get the care you need in your own home, instead of in the hospital? Home health care makes that possible!

  • Recovery: following a stay in the hospital, when you’re recovering from an accident, surgery or serious illness such as: Orthopedics (joint replacement or falls), Cardiopulmonary (heart failure or COPD), General medical (extended in patient stay)
  • Chronic illness: when you have just been diagnosed with a chronic disease, like heart failure, respiratory or kidney disease, MS, Parkinson’s disease diabetes, or Alzheimer’s disease
