What is home health care?
Home health care is a wide range of health care services that can be given in your home for an illness or injury. Home health care is usually less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective as the care you get in a hospital or skilled nursing facility.
How can we help?
Our caregivers assist with all kinds of everyday needs. Their duties include but are not limited to:
- Post-Surgical Assistance
- Physical Disability Support
- Care for Dementia Parents
- Non-Medical Transportation
- Children’s GAPP Program
- In-Home Skilled Nursing Services
- Personal Care Support Personnel
- Parkinson’s Disease Care
- Cancer Care
- Post-Operative Care
- Elective Surgery
- Respite Care
- Postpartum Care
Who receives home health care?
Home health services help people of all ages who are recovering from an illness, operation, or injury to remain in their home and avoid unnecessary hospitalization or skilled nursing facility placement.
What if I only need help for a short time?
Our home health care services are completely flexible. While some prefer a few hours each day, others require 24/7 assistance. Likewise, care can span just a couple of weeks or for many years, depending on your exact situation.
We customize support for each individual, so be sure to let us know your exact needs.
Can I trust my caregivers and professionals?
With us, you can rest assured that our professionals are highly skilled and our caregivers are trustworthy. They are thoroughly trained, certified, monitored, and vetted via a series of intense background checks and educational requirements as governed by state and federal authorities.
Can I request for a live-in caregiver?
Yes you can, but you must provide a private room where your caregiver can stay and sleep. The caregivers must also have regular time off and will have substitutes that will serve you on their behalf.
Can I change my caregiver’s hours?
If you would like to increase, decrease, temporarily suspend or change your caregiver’s visiting hours, please send us a message. We will be happy to work out a plan that won’t disrupt your home care coverage.
Are there any restrictions when it comes to caregivers?
Yes, just a few. To start, male caregivers may only care for male clients, although female caregivers may care for anyone.
While live-in companions must be provided a room with a bed, you are not required to provide them with meals or other provisions.
How can I pay for home care?
Magnolia Home Care Service accepts:
- Private Pay
- Long-Term Insurance
- VA Aid and Attendance
- Medicare and Medicaid
- And more
Will insurance cover my full cost of home health care?
Possibly. Our coordinators do their best to maximize the time you receive as dictated by your insurance eligibility (or out-of-pocket budget). The decision also depends upon the specific recommendation given by your doctor or discharge nurse.
Do I have to come to the office to enroll?
You don’t need to come to our office. We can communicate through the numbers that we provided.
How long will it take for me to start receiving services?
The service process depends on a variety of factors. Please send us a message to know more.
