Home Care Services

There are two types of home health care,
Skilled Home Health Care and Private Duty Home Care.
The goal of skilled home care is to assist the patient and their caregiver to be
as independent as possible in a home setting. This service does require a physician order. 


Skilled Home Health Care allows individuals who have been hospitalized, disabled, or homebound, recovering from an illness and/or injury an opportunity to recuperate in the privacy of their own home. Under the direction of the physician of your choice, this agency can provide a combination of services including Skilled Nursing, Physical, Occupational, or Speech Therapy, Medical Social Services, Registered Dietician/ Nutrition Services, Home Health Aides.

Skilled Home Health Care is covered by insurance, oftentimes Medicare. Skilled home care provides services by Registered Nurses, Medical Social Workers, Home Health Aides, Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapists.

Private Duty Home Care is for individuals who want to remain in the comfort of their home, yet need assistance with daily living chores and/or personal care assistance. These services can eliminate unnecessary hospitalizations and facilitate a safe environment for your loved one. A personal caregiver can come to your home to provide the necessary support that will foster independence and provide family members reassurance that your physical, social, spiritual, emotional, and recreational needs are being met.

Private Duty Home Care is primarily paid for by the patient receiving the services, family member, or trustee. Some people have long-term care policies or another type of insurance that would cover private home care.
