Home health is a service designed to help you recover safely in an independent manner, in the comfortable setting of your home.
Is home care & hospice affordable?
Home Health and Hospice offer an affordable way to receive medical care at home. Many who access these benefits are over the age of 65 and are entitled to Medicare benefits which cover 100 percent of the cost of services and associated medication and supply costs. Medicaid and most commercial insurances also provide home health and hospice coverage.
If I start Home Health or Hospice do I have to give up my own physician?
Often, when patients elect home health or hospice it is their primary physician who authorizes, coordinates and follows their care from start to finish. Your agency should work closely with the physician of your choice as they provide care. If the patient does not have a primary care physician and needs to be seen by a doctor the Home Health and Hospice agency has Medical Directors who can visit the patient. Otherwise, recommendations can be made and the agency can assist the patient in visiting another physician of their choice.

Are Home Health and Hospice appropriate for people who need a high level of care?
Home Health and Hospice is serious medical care. Most agencies are Medicare-certified which requires them to employ experienced medical personnel specifically trained in modalities, techniques and treatments to help achieve the desired outcomes. Hospices offer state-of-the-art palliative care using advanced technologies to prevent or alleviate distressing symptoms.
How do we know when it’s time for hospice?
Hospice is for anyone living with a type of life-limiting illness. It is for people of all ages, from infants to the elderly, who are not seeking aggressive, curative treatment. Hospice is best when elected early as the patient, family and caregivers receive the help, support they need. Hospice is not a final choice or decision. Patients are free to leave the program at any time.
