Home health care is skilled medical care in a home setting. When you leave the hospital after treatment for an illness or injury, Mary Free Bed can help arrange for home health care if you need it.
A nationwide study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that one in three Medicare patients return to the hospital within 90 days of discharge. The good news: most of the common reasons for hospital readmission can be avoided. The personal attention and coaching of home health care has been shown to help patients stay out of the hospital.
Home health care nurses and therapists help you set and achieve goals for better health, quality of life and independence—all from the comforts of home. According to Medicare, home health care is generally less expensive than, more convenient than and just as effective as hospital or nursing home care.
At your first visit, your nurse or therapist will work with you and your caregivers to review and organize your medications, assess your head-to-toe health status and review your home environment for safety. Your dedicated nurse or therapist will spend focused one-on-one time with you to help you set and achieve your goals for improved health, increased safety and greater independence.
Collaborating with your doctors, family and other caregivers, Mary Free Bed at Home clinicians provide expert services. Your care team members will become your best advocates and your personal health care guides. Whether it’s to walk to get your own mail, prepare your meals or play with your grandchild, our clinicians work together and with you to help you to reach your goals.
