Most patients feel secure at their homes and they don’t want to spend any time at the hospital. Taking your health care at home wasn’t an option few years ago, now the patient can receive home health aid that is not worse in any case than regular hospital care. It might even be good for patients to be treated at their homes with their beloved ones around.

Choosing the New York health care that is right for you can be daunting due to lots of services available. Here are few terms to understand before choosing the right service for you or your family members.

Home care and Home Health Aid

Home care is initially used for giving a caring hand for those who need non medical care like keeping the patient accompanied and provide services like light housekeeping and mail preparation, help in laundry and shopping, grooming and personal care, and of course medication reminders.

Brooklyn home care services along with all home care services don’t require any certified skills because they are mainly non medical.

Home Health Aid on the other hand provides nursing skills and therapies like speech and physical therapy.

It has become very familiar that people mix the two terms together and adding medical services to home care. That’s why you need to ask the agency before hiring about the exact kind of services offered and whether it is medical or non medical.

Depending on the patient case, you will choose duration of home health Aid. For example, if the patient is not very ill or you want to hire someone just to stay with your old parent while being at work, then you should choose a part time New York home attended. Likewise, if the patient is very ill and he or she has to be taken care of all day long, shifts or resident home care aid is a better option.

Some health care services are paid by insurance companies, so make sure to talk to the insurance company representative to know their readiness to cover the case and they might also have some recommendations to help you get good home health Aid.

The need of New York home care is increasing with the percentage of elders increase as well and choosing the best home health Aid for your loved ones is very important to help them have all essential care while staying at their homes.
