What is home care?
Home care provides specialized healthcare services and activities in the comfort of a patient’s own home from trained medical professionals working under the direct supervision of the patient’s physician. Home care services cover a wide range of medical, social and therapeutic treatments that help patients return to living healthy and active lives.
The emergence of new medical treatments and technologies has made home care a viable, cost-effective option for people recovering from illness, disease, injury or surgery. As part of the LHC Group family of home health agencies, we are equipped to provide high quality, professional care for a wide range of medical conditions. Home care allows families to keep medical costs down and helps with the healing process by allowing you to recover in the comfort of your own home.
