Portland Home Health Care –
An Alternative to Hospitalization
There has been a growing trend to identify in-home care that includes medical care as home health care. This service brings health services directly into a senior's Portland home.
Medicare recognizes that often a senior receives better and less expensive care in the home than if they were sent to the hospital or a Skilled Nursing Facility. As long as you are "homebound", you may be able to arrange for home health care.
Recovery from an illness is often quicker with elderly home care. Portland seniors like you or your loved one can seek part-time or intermittent skilled nursing care right in your home. Other skilled care services are also available such as physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech-language therapy.
Sometimes the best option is to get extra help right in your own home. It enables you to be independent and stay in your home longer. Portland home medical care agencies make this possible by providing screened, medically qualified staff to assist with your recovery after a critical health event.
Rates vary from $25-$45 dollars per hour of care, which is far less costly than hospitalization.
