What types of services do home care providers offer?

Home health care providers offer patients virtually all of the benefits they would receive in a hospital setting. Although these services are more often than not required to be prescribed by the patient’s doctor, there are some (supportive services like in-home counseling) that can be obtained without a prescription.

  • Physician house calls for treatment and diagnoses
  • Care from Registered Nurses and LPNs (licensed practical nurses)
  • Counseling
  • Speech therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Companion and sitter services
  • Household chores

If you’re in need of home health care, contact a provider in your area for more information on the services they offer.
