What is Home Care?

Before modern medicine, caring for someone medically in the home was quite common, and hospitalization was rare. Today, with a growing trend toward reduced hospital stays, home health care is once again becoming more common. While caregivers of the past were generally family members or friends, home health care in todayís day is based more on a professional health care team working toward a common goal.

Today home care may be considered for patients who are:

  • Recovering from illness
  • Undergoing treatment
  • Disabled
  • Chronically ill
  • Requires disease management
  • Medication management

Home health care is not an option for everyone. Generally, the patient receiving care or treatment at home must be well enough to be cared for in a home setting.
