What is home health care?

Home health care is a range of health care services provided at home to treat an illness or injury. Examples of skilled home care services include wound care for pressure sores or a surgical wound, intravenous or nutrition therapy, monitoring of a serious illness or unstable health status, and rehab therapy services. Home health care can be provided anywhere you call home, including at an assisted living facility (ALF) or adult foster care home (AFC).

Home health care may be right for you after an inpatient hospital stay, if you recently received a joint replacement, or if you have a chronic condition including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), congestive heart failure (CHF), diabetes, kidney disease or respiratory disease, among others.

McLaren Hospice provides health care with an emphasis on quality of life at the end of life. Whether during a short-term hospital stay or wherever you call home, McLaren Hospice provides comfort, support and dignity to those with a life-limiting illness.
