Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT CAN I EXPECT ON THE FIRST HOME HEALTH CARE VISIT?

On the first home healthcare visit, you can expect a licensed healthcare professional, such as a nurse or therapist, to arrive at your home to conduct an assessment.

This assessment will likely involve a review of your medical history, current health condition, and any medications you are taking. The healthcare professional will also evaluate your physical abilities and limitations, as well as your home environment, to develop a personalized care plan.
