What is Home Care?

Home Care encompasses a wide range of health care services provided in the patient’s home with the purpose of restoring and maintaining his or her maximal level of function, health, and comfort. Home care is a collaborative effort involving the patient, family, physician, and interdisciplinary home care team. It is a cost-effective alternative to extended hospitalization, lengthy rehabilitation, or nursing home stay. Patients are usually more comfortable in their own home and studies have shown that patients recover quicker at home.
