Frequently Asked Questions
What is Home Health Care and will my insurance pay for care in the home?Home Health Care are services provided to patients in their own homes under the supervision of their physician. Many patients recover sooner and more comfortably in their own home so we coordinate with hospitals and nursing homes to help people return home as quickly as possible and resume their normal activities.

Our team of professionals offers home care to patients of all ages ranging from intermittent skilled visits to 24 hour care 7 days a week. Our services include, but are not limited to:
I fell at home and fractured my hip. I have been in a skilled facility receiving therapy. When I return home can I continue Physical Therapy with Home Health Care?Yes, you will be evaluated by a Physical or Occupational therapist to provide a safety assessment, strengthening and exercises to prevent further falls.

My spouse has a wound, and he is confined to a wheelchair. Can care be provided in the home?Yes your physician can order Home Health Care with specific orders to treat the wound.
