When should I consider home health care?

If you or someone you love recently had surgery, changed medications, were hospitalized, have trouble with maintaining balance or have been diagnosed with a new illness, it may be time for in-home care. Under Medicare rules, a person qualifies for home health care if he or she needs skilled medical care and is homebound, which means leaving home requires a considerable amount of effort, and needs skilled medical care.

Will Residential Home Health work with my doctor?

Our dedicated and skilled clinicians help coordinate the care each patient’s doctor prescribes. In support of your doctor’s orders, we develop a written plan for your care that explains what services you will receive to reach your physical, mental and social goals. We pride ourselves on staying in touch with our patients’ doctors; they are able to access visit notes 24/7 through our secure, online, HIPAA-compliant Physician Portal.

We are not ready for Residential Hospice, are there other home care options?

In addition to Medicare-covered in-home nursing and therapy services, Residential Home Health also provides palliative care. Unlike hospice care, you do not have to be dying or stop curative treatment to receive palliative care and all of its benefits. Anyone with a serious illness can receive palliative, regardless of life expectancy. Palliative care can be helpful for patients with cancer, COPD, CHF, end-stage renal disease, Alzheimer’s, and many other symptom- or pain-heavy challenges. It can address dizziness, nausea, and shortness of breath, anxiety or depression, encompassing all byproducts of diseases or health challenges. Residential’s palliative care program, Comfort Path, is designed for patients who are still seeking curative treatment options and are not quite ready to transition to hospice. Residential Comfort Path provides physical, emotional and psychosocial support to improve quality of life for patients facing a debilitating illness.
