Who They Are and What They Do…
Home Health Care for Fresno & Surrounding areas provides skilled and supportive care in the patient’s home by licensed healthcare professionals. Services could include medical or psychological assessment, wound care, medication teaching, pain management, disease education and management, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy. These services are covered by Medicare for a limited amount of days under a certification period. The patient must recertify in order for Medicare to continue to cover, otherwise the services will be private pay only.
Private Duty Companion companies help with other life assistance services including help with daily tasks such as meal preparation, medication reminders, laundry, light housekeeping, errands, shopping, transportation, and companionship. These services are generally private pay only and accept no forms of insurance.
Home Health Care and Private Duty companies aim to make it possible for people to remain at home rather than use residential, long-term, or institutional-based nursing care. However, they can also assist people in certain Senior Living situations.
