Why home health care services are necessary

  1. 1. Why Home health care services are necessary?
  2. 2. • Home Health Care Services are very popular in the west. This concept has gained popularity over the last thirty or so years. Home Health care means providing support to the adults and child patients in their homes. The health care can be of two types. One is medical care and the other is non-medical care. The caregivers and nurses are very often assigned to take care of the elderly, the children with chronic back pain or in any other condition. Depending upon the provider, one can have 24 hours of care and 7 days a week continuously.
  3. 3. • Home Health Care services have costs. Depending upon the care level these prices need to be paid. • The care agreement can be anywhere from being temporary to long term. It varies depending upon the condition of the patient or the person in need. The temporary care is also termed as “Respite Care”.
  4. 4. • Many service providers have different facilities for the elderly and the children. The service charges vary tremendously depending upon the location of the office of these providers. So, one should choose wisely keeping a balance between workload, distance and the actual care. Finding the perfect tuning is the key to good health.
  5. 5. • Have you ever heard of the “Never Events”? Well, The National Quality Forum agreed that there are 29 normal errors that shouldn’t happen to a patient. • These errors can be easily avoided. Most of the errors take place when a patient is in medical facility and is being treated.
  6. 6. • That is why there is necessity for Home Health Care Services where an expert caregiver treats the patient or the person in need in the comfort zone of his/her own home. That is where the idea of home care services originated from. A bit of personal touch always helps the sick.
  7. 7. • The modern day insurance system pays for the home health care services as well. You can get a range of services through insurance payment. Be it skilled nursing at home, be it skilled therapy services (i.e. strengthening a body part through continuous training, speech therapy, language therapy etc.). • The insurance services pay for the psychotic cure as well. The patient is very often in need of social re-integration and re- evaluation. The insurance providers pay the fees for the service as well. • Especially for the elderly patients who are going through difficult stages of absent mind syndrome, need intense care.
  8. 8. • Home health care services are great alternatives to your traditional medical facilities. More often than not the facilities don’t suit the patients. The patients don’t get accustomed to the system of a medical facility. It is better to treat them inside the comfort of their houses. They’ll feel better.
  9. 9. • The health care services can be diversified. The elderly need a special type of care and the children need another type of care. So, it is very diverse. Sometimes the person in care might not be a patient. So, home based healthcare isn’t always closely related to medical purposes.
