How frequent do you utilize home health and how do you chose the right one for your patients?

Good Questions. Home health services are so helpful in so many aspects of care, and are generally under-utilized in patients that have difficulty in getting to their appointments, or even with tasks like checking sugars, taking medications, dressing changes, etc. The right home health match with a patient is one that the patient trusts, communicates with the provider, and feels confident making suggestions.
Clarification needed. It depends on the individual's health problem and the level of functional status as well as the safety issues. Several home care agencies are able to have evaluations done and provide recommendations. Please check with insurance first otherwise it will be private pay.
