Frequently Asked Questions

1. What are the benefits of home health care?

Home health care is significantly less expensive than hospital stays, convalescent homes and retirement centers. Being at home, in an environment that is familiar and accessible to friends, family members and other visitors has been proven to help improve the overall condition of elderly and disabled patients.

3. What is the difference between Respite, Hospice and Recovery Care?

Respite Care, also known as the gift of time, allows caregivers free time for themselves while their loved one is supervised.
