"You (Home Health United staff) are absolutely wonderful – high quality, excellent care, considerate, compassionate. I’m the focal point, the interest is always on me. The main goal is to stay here at home. I will stay here. I’m truly blessed."

Brava Advertorial 5-2014When it comes to in-home health care options to deal with a chronic or serious illness, navigating the resources available to you can be difficult and overwhelming. What level of care do I (or a loved one) need? Where can I obtain them and how do I choose an in-home care provider?

Care coordination and continuity of care are two very important services to ensure optimal care for a patient. Receiving care from a provider that can stay with you as your care needs change can greatly reduce errors and improve quality of care and health outcomes.

When you need to make those care transitions from home health to palliative to hospice, choose an agency that can help you through the entire time. What’s the difference between these levels of care?

Home Health helps you recover from an illness or injury, regain independence, and become as self-sufficient as possible. Learn more.

Palliative Care is a form of home health in which patients face chronic or quality of life-limiting illnesses, and focuses on the relief of symptoms, pain and stress. Patients may receive curative treatments. Learn more.

Hospice is for patients with a limited life expectancy, who are no longer receiving curative treatments for any terminal illness. Learn more.

Home Health United offers informational visits where a medical social worker can meet with you and your loved ones and answer any questions you may have. The more information you have, the more empowered you’ll be to make a decision on in-home health care needs.
