When is Home Health Care Needed?
Care at home may be appropriate for a patient who has experienced an illness, hospitalization or surgery, which requires recovery or healing, or who has a new health care diagnosis that calls for a change in daily lifestyle.

Recent or scheduled surgery
Frequent falls
Changes in several medications
Multiple visits to the ER or admission to the hospital
Unintentional weight loss
Difficulty breathing
Poorly controlled pain
Assistance required leaving the home due to a medical condition
Anxiety or psychological challenges due to immobility or changes in condition
Daily wound care or treatments
Multiple diseases or recent diagnoses that limit the ability to leave the home
On oxygen
Nutritional or fluid assessment needs or management
Infection that complicates the wound-healing process
Advanced neurological disease
Limits on physical mobility due to stroke or general weakness
Chronic illness with periods of instability
