Home Care

Home Care … Home Caring

For those with an illness, injury, or disability, home care brings medical services right to your home, in familiar surroundings. Providing these services for you or your loved one in the home can provide a higher sense of security and dignity, while reducing readmissions to the hospital.

Since your care is directed by your personal physician, you can get the care and treatment you need, but with a higher sense of independence. An individualized treatment plan is developed for you, with input from your own physician, the home care team, you and your family.

Home care is not just for seniors. Patients of any age can take advantage of the wide range of services. Much of the care is covered by insurers, including Medicare and Medicaid. The billing office can answer your questions about insurance plans and help you maximize available coverage.
