What is home health care?

Home health care provides nursing, therapy and other specialized services in the privacy and comfort of your home to help you manage a chronic illness or recovery from surgery or an accident. The goal is to help you continually improve, manage your illness or recovery, and keep you at home where you most wish to be.
