Home health care provides medical treatment for an illness or injury, with the goal of helping you recover, regain your independence, and become as self-sufficient as possible. More than just providing excellent care in your home, home health care also saves billions of dollars each year. There is a no more cost-effective provider of health care in our country.
Angel's Choice Home Health offers health care services such as skilled nursing, home health aides, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. We can also offer specialized chronic care programs that focus on actively involving you in your health care process, addressing conditions including:
On the first visit, a nurse or therapist will conduct an initial evaluation. At Angel's Choice Home Health, this thorough interview and evaluation is part of our coordinated approach to managing your overall health status. Our evaluation focuses on educating you in self-care management and partners with your doctor to promote disease prevention and proactive care-which includes the family or caregivers.
This team approach facilitates an easier transition for you from a hospital or nursing facility to your home and actively engages you and your caregivers in your health care.
The frequency of home health care visits and the services provided are based on your doctor's orders in your personal plan of care. Your doctor may change your plan of care, increasing or decreasing the number of visits or services provided, in order to provide you with the best home health care for your needs.
There are several requirements for receiving home health care.
