Home Health Care

What is home health care?

Home health services are those that help clients of all ages, from children to senior citizens, remain in the comfort of their own homes while receiving additional care either after a stay in a medical facility or to avoid hospitalization.

Home health care is a viable option for you or your loved ones who may have problems with mobility, suffer from chronic illnesses, or even just need a companion and occasional assistance.

Our skilled home care team is comprised of a variety of medical professionals, including:

  • Physicians
  • Registered nurses
  • Speech therapists
  • Physical therapists
  • Occupational therapists
  • Home health aides
  • And more!

Generally speaking, home health care encompasses many different services, some of which are listed below:

  • Patient and caregiver education

Home health care can help you retain your independence and self-sufficiency while being comfortable in your own home and maintaining your lifestyle.

What does home health care cost?

Home health care is generally less expensive than the care one would receive in a hospital or skilled nursing facility. In fact, according to the US Department of Health and Human Services, the national average cost for home health care is only a third of the average nursing home (on an annual basis), and less than half the cost of the average assisted living facility.

Most patients find that home health care is more convenient as well, and the quality of care you receive from All American Home Care is just as effective as any hospital or long-term care facility.

If you receive medical assistance through a Medicare health plan, you may receive additional home health benefits. You should check with your provider and your doctor before deciding if home health care is right for you.
