What is Home Care?
"Provision of skilled and/or personal care services to clients in their place of residence for a fee."
The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute estimates that over 2 million Americans have heart failure and that about 400,000 new cases of heart failure are diagnosed each year. Heart failure cliams the lives of over 200,000 people in the United States every year. Approximately 1 million hospitalizations occur each year for patients with this condition, which in many cases could have been curtailed at the onset of or exacerbation of symptoms in the home.
Heart Care at Home offers a distinct, specialized approach to home care. We not only offer broad based interdisciplinary services, but also provide skilled cardiopulmonary assessment and treatment that traditionally requires a controlled, hospitalized setting.
