How Do I Know If I Need Home Health Care
Home Health Care refers to home care that involves more skilled, medical assistance and is provided by CareAtHome Preferred.
Home health provides limited medical support covered by insurance. This includes nursing, physical and occupational therapy, speech therapy, aides and social work. A doctor’s order is required for home health to begin and certain criteria must be met. People who can benefit from home health may need help managing a chronic medical condition or they may need help recovering from hospitalization, injury or illness.
If admitted to the hospital, we encourage you to speak to your nurse or discharge coordinator and let them know that you would like to have CareAtHome Preferred provide your in-home care. Those who have Medicare as their primary insurance must have an in-person appointment in order for home health care services to be covered.
If you think you may need home health care, please contract us for more information at 412-967-1111.
