Homecare & Hospice
About Homecare & Hospice
It's not surprising that people prefer to be cared for in the comfort and dignity of their own homes. Home health, hospice and private duty homecare provide in-home medical services that are affordable and patient-focused.
Home health provides skilled services, including nursing care and physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapy. An agency will send a licensed professional to assess home health needs and develop a care plan.
A homecare worker can help a person with activities like remembering to take medications, preparing meals, transferring from a chair, toilet or bed, bathing, getting dressed, light housekeeping or transportation to and from doctor's appointments.
Hospice care brings together medical care, pain management and emotional and spiritual support for patients at the end of life and their families.
