What is Home Health Care?
Home Health Care includes any professional health support services that allow a person to live safely in their home and avoid unnecessary hospitalisation. The common goal of all BAYADA Home Health Care services is to help our clients live safely at home with comfort, independence, and dignity, and to provide support and peace of mind for their families.
In-home care services can help someone who:
– is aging and needs assistance to live independently
– is managing chronic health issues
– is recovering from a medical setback
– has special needs or a disability
BAYADA professional caregivers such as nurses, health care assistants, and allied professionals provide short or long-term care in the home, depending on a person’s needs.
The care you need in the place you love – your home
Home health care can be the key to achieving the highest quality of life possible, in the comfort and familiarity of home. It can enable our clients to live safety, securely, and independently at home; it can ease their management of an ongoing medical condition; it can help avoid unnecessary and stressful hospitalisation; it can aid and speed recovery after an illness, injury, or hospital stay. Home health care can include:
- Physiotherapy and rehabilitative services
- Short or long-term nursing care for an illness, disease, or disability—including tracheostomy and ventilator care
- Help with personal care and daily activities such as dressing and bathing
- Assistance with managing tasks around the house safely
