Home Health Care: A Viable Alternative

Mar 22, 2008

Has a loved one recently been discharged from the hospital from having a major surgery? Is a family member in need of a nurse, therapist, social worker or personal care aide? Whether there is a need for professional care or assistance with daily living, People Home Health Care can help. Although People Home Health Care is the only provider in Western New York specializing in services for individuals with developmental disabilities, services are available to individuals of all ages and abilities.

Services include: skilled nursing; personal care; physical, speech and occupational therapies; nutrition and social work. The ultimate goal is to reduce hospitalizations and help prevent episodes of acute illness by providing medically prescribed services and assistance. A further benefit of the program is that services are provided in an environment that is familiar and comfortable.

Families and caregivers sometimes find themselves facing decisions that are difficult and may involve moving family members into more restrictive environments. Families may access home healthcare services through a variety of payer sources including Medicaid, Medicare, commercial health or long-term care insurance and private payment. For more information, call 716.874-5600.
