What is Home Health Care?
“Home health care is a wide range of health care services that can be given in your home for an illness or injury. Home health care is usually less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective as care you get in a hospital or skilled nursing facility (SNF).”
The “wide range of heath care services described above include home health care, skilled nursing, wound care, home health aids, sitters, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and private-duty home care services.
Home care can also include hospice care, which is palliative care and not curative in nature. Hospice care is typically reserved for those who suffer from terminal illnesses and is designed to make the patient as comfortable as possible, and improve their quality of life for the remainder of the patient’s natural life.
This page is for the Metairie office location. The location serves the entire east bank of Jefferson and Orleans Parish, as well as St. Bernard Parish.
