Home Health Care

Differences between home health and in-home care:

When looking for care for our loved ones, understanding the differences between home care and home health can be very confusing. I would like to explain the differences: 

Home care provides licensed caregivers that take care of your loved ones in their homes. They stay anywhere from 4 hours to 24 hours. They provide help with activities of daily living, such as bathing, cooking, light housekeeping, companionship, running errands and medication reminders. This is paid for out of pocket or through Long Term Care Insurance. We, at Trusted Life Care are a licensed home care agency and can provide this type of care.

Home Health is also in-home care, however, it is medical care, provided by nurses, physical and occupational therapists. A medical doctor will prescribe this type of help, and it is short term. These nurses, physical and occupational therapists do not stay and care for the patient, rather they provide medical visits only. This is paid for by either Medicare, Medicaid, or private insurance.

Our vision is to create a trusting relationship where your loved one feels safe and comfortable, with the ultimate goal of ensuring their comfort and preserving their independence and dignity to every extent possible.
