Home Health Care

Home Health Care offers a wide range of health and social services delivered at home to those recovering from an illness or injury, or for those who are disabled and/or chronically ill.

Agencies who deliver such care are generally known as "home health agencies". "Skilled services", such as nursing, social services, physical, occupational, speech therapy and personal care assistance are provided for homebound individuals who are under a doctor's care for a new or worsening medical problem.

Non-skilled services, such as help with bathing, dressing, and eating are also available. Walkers, wheelchairs, oxygen, and other medical equipment may also be provided. After a hospital stay and home care services are needed the hospital discharge planner, your doctor, or a social worker can help locate an appropriate agency. The final decision as to which provider you contract with is up to you. The National Association for Home Care has a very informative web page on many aspects of home health care and hospice.   (Courtesy of Yvonne Myers Columbine Health Systems)
