What is Home Health Care?

As the name suggests, home health care is a plan of care provided in the comfort of a patient’s home. The benefits of recuperation in one’s home have long been understood, and home care is becoming an increasingly popular option for health care. Whether your loved one just needs a helping hand for everyday living or requires intensive care for daily living activities, home health care is a convenient and better option for your loved one.

Home health care is usually prescribed by a hospital during the discharge process, but can also be recommended by your loved one’s primary physician. In-home care is favored within the medical community because it reduces the chance that a patient will return to a hospital or doctor for emergency care. In addition, having a dedicated medical professional available provides peace of mind and immediate care should your loved one need it.

Types of Home Health Care Programs

The numerous benefits Home health care can provide for your loved one are often easily accessible. Home health care is not limited to individuals with certain medical conditions or needs, and in-home care can be as simple as helping your loved one shop for groceries or as delicate as giving them a bath. Our care plans were created to be completely comprehensive in order to address the medical needs of each client, and each address a client with certain physical abilities and levels of health.

Our companion care service is an excellent option for loved ones that are living alone and are experiencing difficulty completing daily activities. Our companion care service is typically used by clients that are advanced in age, but are available for any loved one who can care for themselves but need an extra hand around the house.

Transitional Care

Hospital to Home Transitional Care

If your loved one is dealing with a medical condition that requires frequent care, hospital readmission should be avoided at all costs; spending time in a hospital is stressful and uncomfortable and can affect the lives of family members involved in the care of a loved one. Of the many challenges our nation’s health care system faces, readmission rates are one of the least addressed and most problematic; in fact, one in eight patients are readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of discharge.

A complete transitional plan is essential to reducing the risk of hospital readmission. This plan should be implemented before a loved one is discharged. SafeCare's transitional team can help prepare your loved one, your family, and your home to provide them the comforting and healing environment they need.

Our Home Transitional Care’s comprehensive plan addresses the needs in homes and living arrangements of all types and prepares all individuals involved for a seamless and simple transition.

From transportation home to the installation of medical equipment, our transitional team can handle everything to ensure that your loved one can stay in the comfort of their home.
