Are their qualifications to receive home care?
To receive home care services, your physician must order home care services for you. The Area Home Care staff will work closely with your physician to establish your individualized plan of care. To qualify for services under Medicare, you must be considered homebound. This does not mean you may never leave your home. It does mean that you require the assistance of another adult or assistive device, it takes considerable and taxing effort to leave the home, and absences from the home are infrequent and of short duration.
