Home Health Questions:
What is home health care?
Home health care is simply any type of care that is provided for a client in their home. This care can be medical or non-medical. Non- medical care generally refers to personal care and home-making services. Medical care typically refers to skilled or private duty nursing services. Holistic Home Health Care, Inc. aims to take care of all our clients’ needs by providing both medical and non-medical services.
What Is Hospice Care?
Hospice Care is provided to individuals who have been diagnosed with life-limiting illnesses. Care services are centered on providing comfort and relief from chronic pain. It also includes respite for family caregivers, bereavement support, and grief counseling. Care management and interdisciplinary care will be provided by hospice nurses in the patient’s home or any hospice care environment preferred by the family.
Who uses home health services?
Individuals use home health care for a variety of different reasons. Individuals who are being discharged from a hospital, nursing home, or rehabilitation center but still need additional care use home health. People who can no longer care for themselves or their loved ones may also seek out home health care services. Holistic Home Health Care, Inc. tailors its services due to each clients’ unique needs.
Who Uses Hospice Care?
In most cases, hospice care is suggested for a patient who has a prognosis with less than 6 months of life expectancy. However, the same program can also benefit family members who are coping with the changes in their day-to-day activities as they deal with the potential impending loss of a family member. Ultimately, hospice care is for the entire household because it centers on providing comfort, pain relief, and bereavement support for everyone involved.

How do you select your caregivers?
After a caregiver has passed the interviewing and screening process, Holistic conducts a total of five background checks as well as checking a number of professional references. We then select caregivers based on the individual client. We match up caregivers to suit each individual’s location, needs, and personality.
What if my caregiver is sick?
Holistic Home Health Care, Inc. care assembles a team of caregivers for every client so that services will not be interrupted for any reason. If your usual caregiver is unavailable, a Holistic staff member will arrange for an alternate caregiver and notify you of the changes. Any new caregiver will be aware of individual needs and preferences.
How do services begin?
Individuals receiving physician-directed care through insurance may begin services when their Plan of Care has been approved by their physician. Privately managed individuals can begin care as soon as their needs dictate. Talk with a Holistic employee to learn more about your individual process.
