What is Home Health?

Home Health is a type of medical care provided in a patient’s home. Beyond the traditional physician and nurse care, this also includes physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. At its core, home health aims to treat illness and/or injury.

Compassionate Care and its diverse group of professionals is committed to helping our patients get better through home health care.

What services are provided?

Aside from the wide range of clinical services, Home home health aide services. This includes helping elders with their daily needs and activities—such as eating, bathing, and wound dressing—as well as providing assistance in household tasks, chores, and general housework.

Home Health care ensures that the patient is comfortable, and his/her multifaceted medical needs are attended to in a professional yet compassionate manner.


Who pays for this service?

Home Health care is financially covered by Medicare, Medicaid, the Veteran’s Health Administration, and most private insurers. If a patient does not have coverage, Compassionate Care Hospice will work with the patient and their family to ensure that they receive the much-needed support.

Disability Support

Arthritis, physical disabilities, and age-related conditions are some of the few circumstances that prevent patients from caring for themselves. Our caregivers can assist you with daily tasks such as mobility, eating, exercising, and grooming.
