Home health care services are available for routine ongoing needs, post-procedure care, rehabilitation, and short-term illnesses.

Elderly adults who are aging in place with limited mobility or access to transportation can benefit from the convenience of receiving specialized care without having to leave home.

What is Home Health Care?

Home health care is delivered by skilled nurses and other care providers directly within a patient’s home. The services provided vary from patient to patient, depending on care needs and preferences. Home care can offer convenience, reliability, and affordability for those living with advancing chronic conditions who may experience mobility or transportation challenges or prefer being in the comfort of their own environment.

Why Choose Harrison Health at Home?

We are known throughout Pennsylvania and Maryland for our senior living communities that include Independent Living, Personal Care , Assisted Living, Rehabilitation Services, and Skilled Nursing Homes. Harrison Senior Living extends that same level of expertise into our community services.

Individuals who require home health care services will benefit from our personalized approach to treatment and therapy.

Benefits of Home Health Care 

Home health care services provide the peace of mind that many independent seniors and their families appreciate without interfering in an individual’s personal autonomy. Seniors who receive home health care services are often able to remain safely in their own homes, which could be best for their quality of life or more cost-effective than a senior living community.

Home health care services are offered as a temporary option or on an ongoing basis. In the case of recovery, rehabilitation, or respite, the care is provided for a set period or until a treatment plan is complete. If family members are the primary caregivers, home health care services provide much needed relief during vacations or other short-term breaks.

Ongoing home health care services are invaluable for managing chronic illnesses or disabilities. Qualified nurses and therapists who see an individual regularly are able to establish baselines and monitor for disease progression or concerning symptoms. Because the care involves a specialized treatment plan that caters to each individual’s needs, seniors are often able to thrive in their home environment and avoid deterioration in health that requires skilled nursing care.

For families who are unable to care for an aging relative at home, routine home health care services provide reassurance. Families of an independent senior who has the support of skilled caregivers feel secure maintaining their own daily lives.

In fact, home health care services often benefit the family relationship by removing the need to constantly evaluate and discuss medical matters. Families simply get to enjoy each other’s company, which further promotes senior independence.

Does Medicare Cover Home Health Care?

Medicare Parts A (hospital insurance) and B (medical benefits) cover eligible, medically necessary home health care services. These can include skilled nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, medical social services, some home health aide services, and the use of medical equipment within a patient’s home. For patients living in Pennsylvania and Maryland, certain requirements must be met for some home health care services to be provided.

Because the home health care offerings provided by Harrison Senior Living are tailored to meet the needs of each patient, the costs are variable. We encourage you to get in touch with our team to discuss potential services needed, associated costs, and your coverage options.

Case managers also help individuals order medical and non-medical supplies and equipment that may be available under their insurance plan.

Personal Care
