Is home health care right for you?
6/8/2015 3:34 PM
There’s no place like home when you’re recuperating from an illness or hospital stay. Being in the comfort of your home with family, friends and pets gives you a sense of independence, privacy and control, and can lead to a faster recovery. Home care is a safe and economical way to receive the help you need.
Those who can benefit from home health services are people with heart disease, lung disease, cancer, arthritis, diabetes, Alzheimer’s or dementia. Home health also benefits those who have had a joint replacement, stroke or been in an inpatient setting at a hospital, rehabilitation facility or nursing home.
A home health nurse can educate a person on diagnosis and illnesses, medications, perform wound care, do blood work, Foley catheter care, administer IV antibiotics, and much more all within the comfort of your own home.
CTMC Home Health was founded in 1991 and is one of the oldest, most stable and qualified home health agencies in the area. CTMC Home Health has staff that are fluent in Spanish, two nurses who are wound care certified and an excellent therapy department that provides physical, occupational and speech therapy.
CTMC Home Health is in network with most private insurances, and many people are unaware that a benefit of Medicare is 100 percent coverage of all home health costs. All that is needed to have home health set up is a physician’s order.
If you or someone you know could benefit from CTMC Home Health, please call us at (512) 753-3609.
