Frequently Asked Questions
- Do I need to be homebound?
- If you have a temporary health issue, have had a recent surgery or hospital stay and it is difficult to leave home, then we can provide a team of qualified professionals who work to assist you on the path to better health.
- You are welcome to go to church, the doctor, or to an activity which is therapeutic in nature. If it is a tiring to get out, you are most likely considered homebound.
- What is the difference between home care and hospice?
- Home care services are for patients who have experienced an illness, hospitalization or surgery which requires recovery and healing. Home care works aggressively to help you to return to your normal daily life. Hospice is for persons who have decided against aggressive treatment and simply want to be comfortable wherever home is. Although, therapy and nursing services are also available through hospice and also covered by Medicare.
