Compared to a prolonged hospital stay, nursing home or rehabilitation center, home health care is a more cost effective alternative. Experts agree that when a patient receives care in their own home, they heal at a faster rate and show a happier demeanor. This improvement is due to the improved care and more interaction with family members, caregivers and home health care professionals.
When is Home Health Care an Option?
Home health care is a viable option for many people regardless of age! Consider the following examples:
● Those individuals recovering from an illness after a hospital or nursing home stay.
● Those individuals recovering from a surgery like joint replacement or hip surgery.
● Those individuals suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.
