Is there a healthcare hero in your life? Each November home health agencies celebrate National Home Care month to honor healthcare workers from a variety of disciplines, such as nurses, home health aides, homemakers, clinicians and therapists that have gone the extra mile and made a positive impact on the lives of those who are under their care. It takes a special people to work in the home healthcare field and we’re proud of our team at Appleton Area Health Services.
So what is Home Care exactly? Home healthcare comes in the form of skilled nursing and other health care services that are physician ordered and performed in the home by someone with special training including: registered nurse, licensed practical nurses and therapists. Home healthcare can specifically benefit seniors by keeping them in familiar surroundings, as well as relieving the burden of the primary caregiver.
