When an acute illness or injury occurs, extended stay in the hospital or nursing home can add anxiety and cost to an already difficult situation. Another option for patients is for their doctors to prescribe home health care services. This is where Wells Health Care comes in.
The purpose of these services is to provide treatment for an illness or injury in the comfort of the patient’s home. This is done under the direct supervision of a Registered Nurse or Physical Therapist and in conjunction with the patient’s primary care doctor. Home health care services are usually less expensive, and are just as effective as the care received in hospitals or skilled nursing homes.
Most importantly, patients have the opportunity to regain their independence and heal in their own homes without the complications that can come with an extended hospital or nursing home stay.
