Defining home health care

There are literally hundreds of choices for San Francisco Bay Area home health care companies. So how do you choose the one that is the right fit for you or your loved one when it’s needed most?

How do you find a company that can serve all of your needs, from physical therapy to palliative care?

And how you do filter out all the others when you need to rehab surgery, to recover from a stroke or a heart attack, or to get back to your active life after other medical events?

Let’s Start With a Definition of “Home Health Care”.
Home Health care is a way to recover in the comfort of your home with skilled, personalized and professional support available to you 24 hours a day.

A service usually covered by your insurance company, home health care gives you the best opportunity to heal at home.

Most importantly, home health care fosters independence and improves your quality of life.

If the Bay Area home health care company you’re searching for does not offer to coordinate care with your physician, does not provide a personalized plan, or does not have a wide range of services, they most likely are not the right company for you.

How is Home Health Care Different From Home Care?
Home Care is often called companionship because someone comes to your home to help with daily tasks.

Sometimes, the home care worker helps with cooking or delivering meals, light housekeeping and laundry, as well as helping you get dressed, bathe, wash your hair, keep you entertained, or manage your medications.
