If the patient qualifies, home health services are paid for by Medicare, Medicaid, commercial health insurance companies and managed care organizations.
Registered Nurses (RNs) provide skilled services directly at the patient's home that may not be performed safely and effectively by the patient or their families in the home. Some of these services include: injections and intravenous therapy, wound care, education regarding disease treatment and prevention, and patient clinical assessments. Home Health RNs have specialties in wound care, diabetic education, and pediatric nursing.
Social Workers evaluate the social and emotional factors that impact a patient’s recovery from an illness or disability and provide counseling as needed to the patient and family. They also help patients and their family members identify available community resources with the goal of keeping the patient in their own home as long as possible.
Physical Therapists (PTs) and Physical Therapist Assistants (PTAs) provide rehabilitative services aimed at restoring mobility and strength in patients who are limited by physical injuries or illness. These services may include: establishing a home exercise program for the patient and family, conducting home safety evaluations and assisting with pain control measures.
Occupational Therapists (OTs) and Occupational Therapist Assistants (OTAs) provide rehabilitative services to maximize the patient’s level of independence and functioning in activities of daily living. OTs may recommend exercise activities and specialized equipment to restore strength and function of upper extremities and hands.
