What is Home Health Care
Home Health Care allows an individual to maintain their independence and make choices.
Patients include seniors, individuals with disabilities, chronic illnesses and those recovering from surgery as well as accidents. These individuals may live alone or with a family member but because of their health, need assistance and support to remain independent in their home.
Individual patient needs vary and a registered nurse is assigned to visit the home for an assessment and evaluation of the client’s needs and to implement a plan of care for that individual.
Homebound Status – Homebound Status is one of the determining factors for home care eligibility. Determining homebound status depends on the illness or limitations of the patient. The patient is considered homebound if he/she experiences a normal inability to leave their home. The patient is allowed brief and infrequent absences from the home for non-medical reasons; including church, etc.
Common Home Health Diagnoses Include:
- Congestive Heart Failure
- Chronic Airway Obstruction
- Neurogenic Bladder
- Senile Osteoporosis
- Circulation problems
- Ulcers/open wounds
- Knee or Hip replacements
