Physical, occupational and/or speech therapy can also be provided as needed.

Home Health Care Services

Home health care services consists of two main categories: home health care and non-medical home care (also known as Personal Assistance Services). Home health care requires an order from a physician following a face-to-face visit, and can be paid through Medicare, private insurance or private pay. It is usually short-term, and includes services such as post-op rehab, pain management and physical therapy administered by licensed professional nurses, therapists and social workers.

 

Personal Assistance Services do not require a physician’s visit, and is private-pay, although clients may file claims with long-term insurance providers.  The duration of the care is determined by the client, and services typically cover assistance with activities of daily living, meal preparation, light housekeeping, companionship, transportation and respite care, just to name a few. Care is provided by certified nursing assistants or personal care attendants.
