Why Home Care and Not Outpatient Therapy?

  • Wraps and bandages are provided under home care; these items are not covered in outpatient treatment.
  • Transportation is not needed for home care; patients are not forced to drive for treatment with awkward bracing, bandages or devices.
  • Therapy is performed in the patient’s home, rendering him or her more at ease.
  • A registered nurse oversees vital signs, the medication regimen and total care.
  • Home health aides are available to assist with activities of daily living (bathing, toileting, dressing, eating).
  • Patients receive an individualized plan of care and treatment, and treatments last at least 50 minutes on a one-to-one basis.
  • The physician can bill for signing home care certification, recertification and care plan oversight.
