Home health care can prolong independence at home 

If you are caring for a loved one, here are 12 ways home health care can support you:

  1. Home health care professionals can be there when you aren’t able to be. 
  2. Home care supports activities of daily living (ADLs). 
  3. Access to skilled nursing care at home. 
  4. Support with diet and nutrition.
  5. Medication management.
  6. Home health care professionals provide caring companionship. 
  7. Home care helps with light household chores. 
  8. Home health care clients have comparable or better health outcomes. 
  9. One-on-one focus and support. 
  10. An affordable alternative to facility or hospital care. According to the National Association of Home Care, the average cost of care from a skilled nursing facility is $544 dollars per day, while the average cost of home health care per visit is $132 dollars.
  11. Staying home can help prevent exposure to nosocomial infections (institution acquired)
  12. Prevent “Transfer Trauma”
