Home health care is a wide range of health care services that can be given in your home for an illness or injury. Home health care is usually less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective as care you get in a hospital or skilled nursing facility (SNF). Astra Health Care, Inc. providers are trained and experienced in caring for patients of all ages. From children, adults to the elderly, they are capable of ensuring that the care plan laid out by the patient’s physician is applied properly. Providers also coordinate with the physician over the course of care and will report changes and/or improvements in the patient’s health.
Examples of skilled home health services include:
- Wound care for pressure sores or a surgical wound
- Patient and caregiver education
- Intravenous or nutrition therapy
- Monitoring serious illness and unstable health status
The goal of home health care is to treat an illness or injury. Home health care helps you get better, regain your independence, and become as self-sufficient as possible.
What should I expect from my home health care?
Doctor’s orders are needed to start care. Once your doctor refers you for home health services, the home health agency will schedule an appointment and come to your home to talk to you about your needs and ask you some questions about your health. The home health agency staff will also talk to your doctor about your care and keep your doctor updated about your progress. It’s important that home health staff see you as often as the doctor ordered.
We respect all clients and we uphold their individuality. Astra Health Care, Inc. is an equal opportunity employer and care provider:
