Frequently Asked Questions

Why Home Care?
When we are not feeling well most of us ask to be home. We enjoy the comfort of our home and the joy of being with loved ones and friends. Home care keeps families together. Many risks such as infection are eliminated or minimized when care is provided at home. It promotes continuity of care by allowing patient’s own physician to continue to oversee his or her care. Care is personalized and tailored to the needs of each individual.
