Home Care: Overview
Learn more about NRH
Home Care encompasses a wide range of health and social services, including medical, nursing, social or therapeutic treatment and/or assistance with the essential activities of daily living. These services are delivered at home to individuals requiring care from a skilled health care professional.
As hospital stays decrease, increasing numbers of patients need highly skilled services when they return home. Other patients are able to stay at home to begin with, receiving safe and effective care in the comfort of their own homes.
Generally, home care is appropriate if a person is homebound and needs ongoing care that cannot easily or effectively be provided solely by family and friends. Services are provided after hospitalization, as well as to the aging population. More and more older people, electing to live independent non-institutionalized lives, are receiving home care services as their physical capabilities diminish. Younger adults who are disabled or recuperating from acute illness are choosing home care whenever possible.
Northeast Rehab provides a focused plan of care to assist patients and their families in achieving the highest level of function and quality of life.
