What is Home Health?
Hospitalizations and more advanced medical care are sometimes necessary when a person is faced with an acute or chronic illness or an injury. During this time in life, the help of skilled doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals is essential to resolve the concern and move a patient toward recovery. Once that period of recovery arrives, many patients prefer to return home as soon as possible and avoid staying in a rehabilitative care facility. Sunshine Homecare offers a variety of home health options to provide these individuals with the care and support they need to safely and comfortably recover at home.
Long-term home health care is appropriate for anyone with a chronic health condition that causes their difficulty in managing on their own. Skilled and licensed nursing staff come to the home on a regular basis to provide medical support and continued evaluation for setbacks or improvements.
Short-term home health care is frequently prescribed when a person is discharged home following a hospitalization or needs temporary support with a medical condition. Our qualified case managers work with your physician and hospital discharge planner to ensure your doctor’s orders are followed and medical support is appropriate and beneficial.
Therapeutic services are often prescribed to enhance the recovery process and help patients overcome challenges. These programs help to improve mobility, increase independence, and teach new skills that support safety and independence.
Who Benefits from Home Health Services?
Home health care is available for anyone who has a prescribed need for medical support long-term or short-term. It is most often prescribed following a hospital discharge, but at times, doctors will also advise home health to assist with managing a chronic health condition such as Parkinson’s, COPD, Alzheimer’s, a traumatic brain injury or diabetes.
