What is Home Health Care?

Schofield’s Home Health Services enable individuals to live at home, enjoying activities of daily living to their fullest ability. Schofield’s licensed and certified home care agencies provide, coordinate and manage the delivery of numerous health care services with the goal of keeping people in their community. At the center of the program is the coordination of care provided by a dedicated community health nurses.

From a few hours of help, to rehab to connecting you with the community services you need to stay in your home, choosing the right approach for yourself or a loved one is an important decision. There are many advantages to home care that benefit both patients and their support networks alike.

Benefits of Home Health Care

In-home care allows older adults to age in their community and avoid moving into a new setting.  Depending on the level of nursing or medical care needed, Home Care can provide added assistance so that individuals can continue to stay where they’re most comfortable,

Adult children or extended family often serve as primary caregivers to elderly or ill loved ones.  Home Care allows family caregivers to carry out their own priorities such as work, childcare obligations and personal lives while having peace of mind that loved ones are comfortable and receiving professional, compassionate assistance.  

Intact Personal Freedom

A senior typically sacrifices a significant amount of freedom after transitioning to a health care facility such a nursing home.  When home care allows an individual to safely stay at home with some level of care, they’ll maintain more of their privacy and dignity.  Also, increased autonomy and control over  personal choices such as schedules, meals and activities of daily living remains intact.  

Companionship

Regardless of someones age, race, or social status, having someone who cares in their presence makes such a difference in someone’s emotional well being. Simply having someone there, to talk, engage with, share stories with, etc. can mean so much so someone who may live alone, or may have lost their spouse to old age.

Improved health

When a loved one is aging and has an acute or chronic illness, a wound that needs healing, receiving appropriate nutrition, medication, rest, and medical supervision is critical. For many people, home health care workers can help loved ones maintain their level of wellness for a longer period.

Research shows that home health care services:

  • Improve clients’ ability to ambulate, walk and move around
  • Help getting in and out of bed and limiting pain
  • Assist in improved bathing and hygiene practices.
  • Improve bladder control
  • Require less unplanned/emergency wound care and in general.
