In Home Health Care Services

  • Companionship and Homemaking: includes general check-in visits, light meal prep, light cleaning, laundry, and errand services. While Certified Home Health Aides cannot transport clients, they may accompany them to doctor’s appointments or trips to places such as the grocery store. Companionship and homemaking services are typically offered and covered in conjunction with personal care.
  • Hospice: includes a multi-disciplinary team of physicians, nurses, social workers, bereavement counselors and volunteers to address the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of the client and his or her family. Hospice is provided in-home and addresses the issues most important to the client’s needs and wants at the end of life with the focus on improving the individual’s quality of life.
  • Personal Care: includes elimination/incontinent care and personal care such as bathing/dressing and hair/nail/skin/oral care. Personal care is administered by Certified Home Health Aides, with a plan of care established first through discussion with the client/caregiver and a Registered Nurse. Some health insurance providers, such as state Medicaid, require a physician’s order for personal care.
  • Skilled Nursing: includes comprehensive assessments, cardio-pulmonary management, disease education/management, elimination management, wound care, IV maintenance, and medication instruction/administration. Skilled nursing is typically performed by a Licensed Practical Nurse or a Registered Nurse, and all procedures and the frequency of the visits are determined by the client’s primary care physician.
  • Therapy: includes home-based therapy that allows clients to develop independence with daily activities in a convenient and comfortable setting where families can also be closely involved in the rehabilitation process.
    • Exercise therapy helps individuals maintain or gain range of motion/mobility.
    • Occupational therapy helps individuals regain day to day skills such as dressing and feeding.
    • Speech and language therapy helps individuals improve breathing, speaking, or swallowing function. Speech therapy focuses on the ability to understand words and the ability to use words to express one’s self.
