People receive HOME HEALTHCARE when they need help to live independently and safely at their residences. 

 

We understand finding the right care for the loved ones can be challenging and stressful, and we are here to help.

If The Patient: 

  • Is able to recover at home with family

  • Is unable to live with the family 

  • Needs intense out-patient medical care 

In Good Hands

The patient can choose HOME CARE (medical/non-medical) from a licensed provider that recruits, trains, and manages professional caregivers to visit and provide the patient care at the patient's residence.  The care is the most effective because the ratio of caregiver and patient is 1:1.  

Seniors Socializing

The patient will live with other elderly people in a NURSING HOMEThe ratio of caregiver and patients is usually 1:10 or more.  

Hospital

 The patient will stay in SHORT-TERM SKILLED CARE UNIT until the patient is ready to transfer to other types of care or when the patient's Medicare or private insurance no longer covers the cost.  The ratio of professional medical staff and the patient is often >4:1.
