Home Health care refer to a wide range of medical and non-medical services provided at a patient’s home to help them recover from an illness, surgery, or manage chronic conditions.
Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance, and out-of-pocket payments are common sources of funding for Home Health. Coverage depends on the insurance policy and the nature of the care needed.
If a patient’s needs surpass what Home Health can offer, the provider will usually coordinate with other healthcare services or facilities to ensure continued care.

Palliative care is specialized medical care that focuses on providing relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness, regardless of the diagnosis or stage of the disease.

Any patient suffering from a serious illness, regardless of age or stage of disease, may benefit from Palliative care. This includes patients with cancer, heart disease, lung diseases, kidney disease, Alzheimer’s, and many other conditions.
While pain management is a significant component, Palliative care also addresses other symptoms like nausea, fatigue, anxiety, and shortness of breath. It also provides emotional, spiritual, and psychosocial support.
Palliative care can be given alongside curative treatments. Its focus is on managing symptoms and improving quality of life, and it can complement other therapies or treatments.
