Ask the right questions about home health care

Provided By:

(NC)-For seniors with health issues, home health care could mean greater independence. But is it a viable option? "Home health care is a great alternative, especially for seniors who want to stay in their own homes as long as possible," says Mary Plaudis, RN for Bayshore Home Health.

Plaudis offers these answers to frequently asked questions about home health care:

What is it?

Home health care is an alternative to a hospital, long-term care facility or a retirement residence. Services are varied and include nursing care, personal care and companionship. You can learn more about it at www.bayshore.ca.

Where is it available?

Services are delivered right in the home or care facility. No travel is required by the individual.

Why will it make a difference?

Staying in your home preserves independence and dignity while enhancing quality of life. It can also reduce the pressure felt by family members to provide care during challenging times.

When is the right time?

The need for home care is generally triggered by an on-going health issue or a sudden event such as a fall or stroke. It can also be used by seniors who need help with daily activities or companionship.

How is it funded?

Payment can be made privately or funded through government care programs, personal and group insurance plans and Workers' Compensation Insurance.
