What are Home Health Care Services?
“Home Health Care” is the term used to describe the service of providing nursing support in your home.
If you or a family member has a disability, a chronic health condition, or needs help while recovering from an illness, injury, or surgery – you may need nursing assistance to help you stay in the comfort of your home. A nurse can come to your home if you require either short-term or long-term care.
Your doctor will decide which home health care services you need (medications, IVs, wound care, etc) and write the order or script. Your Advantage Home Care caregivers are skilled nurses – RNs or LPNs who will work with your medical team to develop a plan of care that is tailored to your needs. Our goal is to provide high-quality care to help you stay safe at home.
