5 Common Home Health Myths

Home Health Services are expensive, I'll never be able to afford it.

Cost is determined by the length of time and services provided AND a part of the cost is often covered by Medicare*.

Home Health means full-time, 24/7 care is required.

Home health patients receive varying hours of care per week. Care and schedules are customized to each individual. Dedicated clinicians will assess your needs and goals, as well as your environment, and work with you on your health goals.

To qualify for Home Health services you must be unable to leave your home.

Patients receiving home health services must be considered “homebound,” which means any absences from the home are infrequent, short, and require a taxing effort. Patients may still leave their homes to meet medical needs (i.e. – doctor appointments, dialysis, etc.)

I can't use Home Health services if I live in a senior living community.

Home health services can be utilized in your own private home, or your apartment at just about any senior living community, including Edgewood.

I have no say in who comes into my home to provide care.

Your safety, security, and comfort are paramount. We carefully match caregivers and patients, taking each of your preferences and personalities into account.

Now that we have debunked some of the common myths, let’s discuss some of the indicators that Home Health services may be right for you:

Have you been diagnosed with a new illness or an ongoing illness that you need help managing?

Were you hospitalized recently?

Has your medication changed recently?

Is it difficult to leave your home for medical appointments?

Do you require skilled nursing services?

Do you require therapy services?

Do you find daily activites difficult to accomplish?

Would you rather be cared for at home?

if you answered YES to any of these questions, then home health care may be right for you. Talk to your physician or contact us today at 877.651.5839.
