FAQ

Home Health Care is quite simply high quality clinical care provided to you where you live, whether that is in your own home, in someone else’s home, in an assisted living facility or other residential setting. It can often be an alternative to care provided in a hospital, nursing home or rehab facility, giving you the peace of mind of personalized care delivered to where you are most comfortable…in your own home.

There are many programs and insurances that offer a home care benefit. These include Medicare, Medicaid, commercial health insurances, long-term care insurance and the VA. It is always best to verify exactly what is covered by your individual insurance plan. You can call us and we will be happy to help you figure this out.
