Home health care is medical in nature and is provided by licensed, skilled healthcare professionals. Home care services have numerous providers today that deliver services in the client’s own home. Professional home care services for healthcare include medical or psychological assessment, wound care, pain management, disease education and management, physical therapy, speech therapy, or occupational therapy. The best home care services are often an integral component of the post-hospitalization recovery process, especially during the initial weeks after discharge when the patient still requires some level of regular physical assistance. Patients who received home health care after being discharged from the hospital are associated with a decrease in the use of the healthcare system, hospital readmission, and death. These services may include some combination of professional health care services and life assistance services.
