What is Home Health Care?
Home health care is a service that allows patients to receive treatment at home rather than staying in the hospital.
Home health care will provide physicians, nurses, therapists and any other staff that may need to visit you.
Your medicines and dressings will be supplied by the home health care, and all of that will be under the supervision of a physician and his/her close guidance.
