Home Health provides care to patients at home-where they receive support
from trained medical professionals, family, friends, plus the comfort
of familiar surroundings. Regardless of age, everyone appreciates the
comfort and convenience of recovery in their home as an alternative to
hospitalization or a nursing home. Home healthcare may also mean earlier
discharge from the hospital, and lower healthcare costs. It is a personalized
form of care, which may be paid by Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance,
or directly by the patient.
