What Do Home Health Care Services Include?
Home health care services are designed to help older adults remain independent in their own homes for as long as possible, even with disability, illness, or injury. It covers a wide range of services which can delay the need for long-term nursing home care. The home care services offered at Nova Home Care & Staffing can mitigate some of the stress of everyday activities.
On top of providing assistance with general home care needs such as cleaning and meal prep, home health care can often include more specialized services such as physical therapy, speech therapy, and skilled nursing. While home health care can include basic non medical home care services, the medical aspect is what makes home health care a more specialized service. Home health care professionals are generally licensed nurses, therapists, or home health aides which allows them to provide specialized care that could not be provided by a standard home care provider.
Home Much Do Home Health Care Services Cost?
The cost of home health care services will ultimately depend on a number of factors. How many hours will the caregiver need to be available? What specific services are being provided during the home health care period? Patients that require more specialized and focused care will have a higher cost associated with the time they are spending with a client. Skilled nurses, for example, can provide medical care that cannot be provided by a home health aide which makes their hourly rates higher.
