what does home care mean?

HOME HEALTH CARE

Home health care is intermittent skilled care and medical support which includes skilled nursing, disease management, rehabilitative therapy (physical, occupational or speech) and social services.

For Medicare enrollees, these services are covered by Medicare when a patient’s MD prescribe these services and the services are provided by a Medicare-certified agency. Services are provided by licensed nurses (RN or LPN) and home health aides. 

private skilled CARE

Private skilled care provides advanced clinical care (including round-the-clock care) for medically-complex children, adults and seniors. While home health care provides intermittent nursing care, private skilled care provides continuous care — on a short- or long-term basis — generally from four to twenty-four hours a day for those with complex medical issues, including stroke & brain injury. 

Private skilled care are provided by licensed nurses (RN, LPN) and home health aides.  Private skilled care includes all facets of skilled care, disease management and in-home therapy/rehab services as well as personal/home care.  

Personal/HOME CARE

Personal/home care provides non-medical assistance. It generally does not require a MD prescription. It focuses on providing assistance in their daily activities for adults, or seniors. Home care, a vital lifeline, is sometimes referred to as personal care, companion care, homemaker services, custodial care, unskilled or non-clinical care.
