Home health care enables patients to recuperate from short-term illness or deal with chronic disease in the comfort of their own homes.

Working together with the patient’s physician, a skilled team of home health professionals look after the patient’s physical, social, and emotional needs.

One of the goals of home care is to provide patients and families the care, education, and support needed for them to become independent in their care.

Home care services may include visiting nurses, home health aides, medical social services, or hospice.
