When a person hears the terms home health care, in-home care or home health aide services, often times the first thing that comes to mind is caring for the elderly. This, however, is a bit of a misnomer, considering that home health care can run the gamut – from post-surgery care to speech therapy.
“Home health care is a wide range of health care services that can be given in your home,” Medicare.gov explains. “Home health care is usually less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective as care you get in a hospital or skilled nursing facility.”
Just as it is described by the folks at Medicare.gov, Freedom Home Care’s goal for home health care is to treat an illness or injury and help an individual not only recover but also become as self-sufficient as possible. Making patients feel comfortable at home also shares the place
of top priority for the caregivers at Freedom Home Care.
Whether it be full-time live-in care or flexible hourly assistance (which requires no hourly minimum to begin), Freedom Home Care goes beyond the typical expectations that define in-home care.
Some of the personal care services available through Freedom Home Care include caring companionship, grooming assistance, morning wake-up and evening tuck-in services, incontinence care, medication management, diabetic care and chronic illness supervision. Home health care aids can also accompany clients to appointments, offer basic wound care and post-hospital care, and can provide day surgery companion care and respite care. Their assistance goes beyond the home, as they are also available for bedside care in hospitals and nursing homes.
Further bucking the conventional ideas associated with home health care, Freedom Home Care delivers services like, meal preparation, light housekeeping, pet care, house sitting and running errands – whatever it takes to remind a patient that there is truly no place like home.
