Baxter and Marion County Home Health Care
What is Home Health care?
Home healthcare is part-time professional healthcare for patients of all
ages, under physician direction, provided to the patient in the home setting.
Many patients benefit from being in their own homes surrounded by friends
and loved ones during their recovery process.
Essential components of home healthcare include teaching the patient self-care,
securing necessary equipment and medical supplies, instructing the family
in the physical care of the patient and helping family members cope with
the challenges that result from the patient’s illness.
Home healthcare is recognized as a less expensive and increasingly important
alternative to hospitalization or care in a nursing home. Home healthcare
is a more effective way to provide health services in a comfortable home
environment to patients who do not need 24-hour professional supervision.
