Home healthcare offers a wide range of healthcare services that can be given in the home when someone is suffering from an illness or injury. Many people prefer to receive this kind of care in the comfort of their own homes as opposed to obtaining care in a hospital or skilled nursing facility (SNF). Home health care is generally less expensive, may be more convenient and just as effective as care received from a facility.
Some people assume that they can save money on health or nursing services for seniors by keeping them at home and just hiring a home health care agency to fill in the gaps. There is some logic to this. Family members might chip in by providing some housekeeping and supervision, and home health care agencies can be hired just to provide necessary services. While this may work out less expensive than residential assisted living or nursing care, there is still a cost involved.
