What is Home Care and is it different than Home Health?

We provide home care. Home care is a service that helps those in need by assisting with activities of daily living (ADLs) Examples include: bathing, grooming, dressing, and transferring, ambulating, meal preparation. To continue living life from the comfort of his or her home, one may choose home care. Home care is a model that can include both professional and informal support networks such as professional caregivers, family, neighbors, and friends. Home Care paid privately, but in some cases, we can accept Veteran’s Benefits or Long Term Care.

Home health refers primarily to a home health care agency that is usually a medical variety of home care and provides mainly skilled care, physical therapy, and occupational therapy for homebound patients. In most cases, these individuals do not stay for longer than an hour and are paid by Medicare benefits.
