Certain patients recovering from an injury, surgery, or medical event may be eligible for home care. In many cases, home care can help patients avoid a nursing home stay or a lengthy time in the hospital. Home care ensures a smooth transition from hospital to independent living.
There are several advantages to home care, including:
Patients are able to be in a familiar place during recovery
Family and friends can easily visit and participate in patient’s care
The cost is less than a hospital or nursing home stay and is often covered by your insurance
