Benefits of Home Health Care

Benefits of Home Health Care Services from Haven Home Health

One of the most important goals of health care is ensuring that ill, elderly, and disabled patients receive high quality, personal, and compassionate care. Home health care is designed to meet these needs by offering personalized service in the convenience of a patient's home.

Home Care Benefits for Patients

The number one benefit of home health care is that it allows patients to receive personal care in the privacy and comfort of their own homes. For aging and homebound individuals, in-home care facilitates them in remaining as functional and independent as possible, providing a much higher sense of security and dignity. Receiving home health care helps to reduce unavoidable readmissions to the hospital, and studies have shown that patients recuperating from illness, injury, or surgical procedures heal more quickly and more successfully when recovering at home versus in a medical facility.

Home Care Benefits for Caregivers & Loved Ones

Family members often serve as the primary caregivers to their ill or elderly loved ones. Home health care provides needed assistance to family caregivers, allowing them to get back to their lives and enjoy more quality time with their homebound loved ones. Furthermore, with in-home care, families that are unable to serve as primary caregivers have the benefit of knowing that their loved ones are receiving professional, compassionate, and personalized care in the convenience of their own homes.

The primary benefits of home health care include:

• Delivered in the comfort of the patient's home
• Easier for family and friends to visit
• Promotes healing and provides more safety from infections
• Allows more freedom and independence
• More affordable than inpatient care
• Tailored to the needs of each individual patient
• Reduces re-hospitalizations
