If you have an elderly loved one you may be considering home health care and wondering if it is the right option for your situation. Home health care helps adults live independently for as long as possible, even if they have an illness or injury. Home health care is a broad term for a wide range of services that often delay the need for long-term nursing home care. This blog will explore the question: who needs home health care?
Individuals Who Prefer to Stay at Home
As the name suggests, home health care involves services that take place at the patient’s home. For individuals who wish to regain their health and independence in the comfort of their own home rather than stay at a nursing home or hospital, home health care is a great option. An individual may require home health care due to either age or disability.
Individuals with Chronic Diseases and Disabilities
Individuals suffering from chronic diseases and disabilities, such as Alzheimer’s, diabetes, heart failure, or kidney disease, can benefit from home health care. These individuals will receive careful monitoring in the comfort of their own home.
Individuals Who Are Terminally Ill
Often times, terminally ill individuals wish to live their final days in the comfort of their own homes surrounded by their loved ones. Home health care provides all the necessary services for terminally ill patients to keep them as comfortable as possible.
