When Home Health Isn’t Enough


Home health is designed for patients recovering from illness, injury or surgery. In most cases, home health successfully returns a patient to independence while also helping to prevent a return to the hospital. Sometimes, however, patients and families find that home health treatment options are no longer helping. At that point the focus may shift toward emphasizing comfort and improving quality of life instead of recovery.

That’s when it may be time to consider hospice care.
