There are many differences between home health care and home care in The Woodlands. Home health is limited by the amount of time their staff is allowed within the home, usually an hour or two at the most. Home health care may address more medical needs such as wound care, medication administration, and IVs. As an in-home care agency, we can work closely
with home health care and provide services that are not limited to the amount
of time we are with the client. Whether care is needed for a short period of
time, to up to 24 hours, home care is there to keep people safe. We assist with
activities of daily living such as: bathing, dressing, meal preparation,
incontinent care, and we can also offer some nurse delegation tasks depending
on the client’s needs.Our caregivers frequently assist home health
care, and other physicians. For example, if a client is getting physical
therapy at home, we have the therapist train our caregiver in the exercises
needed to be performed by the client to promote mobility and strength. In doing
this, we can make sure the client continues to receive that care even once the
therapist is gone. We also make sure that the client is prepared for sessions with doctors by making sure they are dressed, fed, and ready
before the appointment.Below are some other differences between home care and home health care:
