How do I choose the right home health care provider?
There are many important factors to consider in choosing the best agency to meet your needs. First you must assess what types of services you will need and find an agency that offers those services. Ask the agencies you are considering about their accreditation, licenses and certifications. You'll also want to evaluate the quality of care, and the skills and training of personnel at the agencies under consideration. Call Nurture Services for more info
What are my rights as a patient?
Federal law dictates that all home health care patients be informed of their rights and responsibilities. At NURTURE SERVICES we can provide you with a summary of patient's rights and responsibilities.
Isn't home health care expensive?
Home health care costs differ greatly depending on the individual case, but are usually much lower than the long-term care facility alternative. Often the costs are buffered or completely covered by a third party such as insurance or special government programs designed to assist handicapped, disabled or injured people and their families. What's more is that home health care is billed based on usage. That is to say that if you only use one hour of service, you're only billed for one hour unlike a long term facility which bills around the clock whether care is being given or not.
When should we consider home health care?
The time to consider home health care for you or a loved one is when help is needed with some or all of the normal activities of daily living, such as hygiene, housekeeping, cooking, shopping or even walking steadily without assistance. Other indications may be that more help is needed than the family is able to offer or there is an increase in forgetfulness that may prove dangerous because of medications improperly taken or stove burners being left on. Ideally, home health care is like anything else, a step that is best planned for in advance as in the case of a home recovery from an elective surgery or when the caregiver in the family plans a vacation or simply needs relief. In reality, however, these instances are the exception rather than the rule. Fortunately, NURTURE SERVICES is often able to fill your needs even with very short notice.
