When is home care needed?

Home care can be an option when a person is:

  • Recovering from or adjusting to a new illness
  • Dealing with a chronic illness
  • Feeling anxious and fearful about a medical condition
  • Having to alter lifestyle after a health care diagnosis

Home care is often very helpful during transition periods following a hospitalization or skilled nursing stay. Therapists are also skilled at recommending home modifications that can make staying at home more feasible. Home health care is generally paid for by Medicaid, Medicare, long-term insurance, or with a patient’s own resources.
