Home Health Advantages

Home health care provides over 8 million permanently disabled and chronic or terminally ill individuals with services each year. The majority of patients are over the age of 65, but home health care also provides services to patients who have been discharged from hospitals so that they can continue to receive the rehabilitative care they need in the comfort of their own home.

For many patients, being able to receive quality and caring health care services at your home is a great enough advantage, but there are also other reasons to consider home health care.


Receiving the continuous care you need at home eliminates all costs related to having to stay in the hospital. Home health care professionals can provide a full range of services for you in the comfort of your own home once you are discharged which can continue throughout the length of your recovery.


As mentioned above, home health care allows the patient to recover in the comfort and security of their own home. You will receive individualized care designed to meet the specific needs of treatment best for you! Maintaining independence is a primary advantage that home health services offer.

Quality of Care

One-on-one treatment is always a plus! With home health care, you are not just a number or resident, you are THE patient. Your clinician will provide care that is custom to you, always.

Family Participation

When you heal and receive care at home, this allows family members to be actively involved and can also allow for more flexibility in scheduling and developing routines that will work with everyone!


If your doctor indicates that you or a loved one needs home health care, you get the choice of which agency you’d like to use as long as it’s covered by your insurance. This allows you to choose an agency that you want and one that has great ratings and reviews.

Patient Rights

When selecting a home health care, if you select a Medicare-approved home health agency you are entitled to certain rights according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. A major advantage is that the health care agency must give you a copy of your care plan, outlining the types of services to be delivered, as well as how often you can expect to receive those services. Also, all staff will treat yourself and your personal property with respect!
