What is a Home Health Agency?

Home Health Agencies provide medical care, rehabilitation services, and therapy services to seniors that are homebound.  Home Health Agencies usually administer care by a registered nurse (RN) or licensed therapist.  Home health is not to be confused with home care, which mainly deals with non-medical issues such as companionship and personal care.  Home health care is covered by both Medicare and private insurance, so it is important you contact your insurance provider to see what benefits you may qualify for.
