What is Home Health Care?

Home care provides treatment for an illness or injury that has made it difficult for you to leave your home. It helps you recover, regain your independence and become as self-sufficient as possible in the comfort of home.

If you have a temporary health issue, recent surgery or have had a recent hospital stay, home care provides qualified medical clinicians who work with you on your path to better health.
If you have chronic or long-term health issues, the goal of home care is to maintain your highest-possible quality of life as you learn to make life changes to adapt to your illness or disability.

Our clinical team works with you and your doctor to evaluate your healthcare needs and develop your plan of care.

What is homebound?

Although it is true that Medicare requires an individual to be “homebound” to receive home care services, the definition of home bound has changed and is now much broader.

An individual does not have to be bedridden or confined to their home to be considered homebound. The Medicare definition states that occasional absences from the home for non-medical purposes (a trip to the barber, a walk around the block or a drive) will not necessarily disqualify a beneficiary from being classified as homebound. However, the absences must be infrequent or of a relatively short duration.

Other conditions that classify patients as homebound and eligible for home care services include:

  • Beneficiaries may be temporarily homebound due to being recently released from the hospital following surgery, or who may be suffering from resulting weakness and pain, and whose activity is restricted by their physician to certain specified, limited activities (such as getting out of bed only for a specified period or walking stairs once a day)
  • Beneficiaries will be considered homebound if they have an illness or injury that restricts their ability to leave their residence except with the aid of supportive devices (canes, wheelchairs and walkers), special transportation or another person. Beneficiaries with conditions for which leaving home is medically constrained are also considered homebound.
