Home healthcare is designed for people who are returning home from a hospital or facility due to illness, injury, surgical procedure, or chronic disease. In some cases, your doctor may refer you directly. The goal of the service is to help you regain independence and to ensure you are safe within the home.
Home Care is non-medical services designed to assist individuals with activities of daily living (ADL) and instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) for long-term care patients so they can remain safe and comfortable at home.
Hospice care is specialized care for people diagnosed with terminal illness, with supportive services for their families and caregivers. Anyone who a doctor believes has a life expectancy of six months or less and who has stopped all curative treatment is eligible for hospice care to be provided at home.
