Vision Home Health is here to provide you with professional and quality home health services.
Who is Eligible for Home Health Care?
Home health care is provided to patients who are in need of intermittent skilled care and leaving the home requires considerable taxing effort. Home health clinicians provide the same level of skilled care and rehabilitation services the patient would otherwise receive in another health care setting such as a hospital or nursing home. These services are ordered and directed by a qualified physician who coordinates the care of the patient directly with the agency.
Examples of common conditions that may qualify the patient for home health include wound care for pressure sores or a surgical wound, patient and caregiver education, intravenous and nutrition therapy, injections, monitoring serious illness and unstable health status. If you have questions regarding eligibility for your particular situation, feel free to contact us and we will be happy to answer your questions.
