Frequently Asked Questions

Home care is care provided in the home when a patient is unable to  can include both certified healthcare and personal care/private duty. As hospital stays decrease, increasing numbers of patients need skilled services when they return home. It can include assisting those persons who are recovering, disabled, chronically or terminally ill and are in need of medical, social, therapeutic treatment, and/or assistance with the essential activities of daily living. To receive home care, you must be homebound.

Homebound means that you have an inability to leave your home, or that it takes a considerable and challenging effort to leave home. Absences from the home must be infrequent or for a very short period of time, for instance leaving your home for medical appointment. A person is considered to be homebound if you have an illness or injury, which restricts your ability to leave home unless you have help. Examples would be if you need a wheelchair, special transportation or help from another person to leave your home. In most cases, if you are able to drive you are not considered homebound. If you leave your home for purposes other than to receive medical treatment and if the absences are long and frequent, such as frequent shopping trips or visits to friends, you are not deemed homebound. When you are able to leave your home, Medicare expects that any medical care you require will be provided in an outpatient setting.
