What is Home Care?
In general, home health care includes part-time or intermittent skilled nursing care, and other skilled care services like physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy services. Services may also include medical social services or assistance from a home health aide. The home health care agency coordinates the services your doctor orders for you.
