What is Home Care?

Home health care is a wide range of health care services that can be given in your home. Home health care is less expensive and more convenient than the care you get in a hospital or skilled nursing facility.
The goal of home health care is to treat an illness or injury. Home health care helps you get better, regain your independence, and become as self-sufficient as possible.
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.

We are here to help when you need us.
