If you or your loved one is recovering from an illness, injury, or hospitalization, your doctor may recommend receiving follow-up care at home through a home health care agency. Home health care agencies are organizations that send medical professionals to patients’ homes so patients can receive skilled nursing and rehabilitation without going to a hospital or residential facility. Receiving care through a home health care agency that best addresses your needs can improve your health outcomes, decrease your out-of-pocket healthcare costs, and lower the chance that you will be readmitted to the hospital due to health complications.

This video will help you better understand home health care so you can make informed decisions about post-hospital recovery.
