The benefits of home health care providers

While the Affordable Health Care Act is poised to be amended or replaced completely, the law still has a number of useful provisions that some legislators are uncomfortable parting with.

For instance, the current version allows states to create optional Medicaid benefit programs where people who have chronic medical conditions. This because the ACA currently prohibits Medicaid programs from denying home health services to people who have one or more of these conditions.

For the uninitiated, home health providers are entities who can come into a person’s home and help with a variety of things that elderly or disabled people need assistance with. This post will highlight a number of the services that home health care company can provide. 

Personal care – This may include assistance with bathing, grooming and dressing for those who may not be able to do so themselves.

Dieting –Many elderly and disabled people do not want to go to a nursing home, but they don’t have the ability to maintain a steady, healthy diet. A health care provider could help with dieticians and cooks who can make sure their residents get balanced meals.

Home care – General cleaning services, including mopping, vacuuming, cleaning kitchens and bathrooms can help the elderly and disabled be healthier by avoiding bacteria based diseases.  

Safety - A home health care provider can also offer security management, welfare checks and rapid response services.

It remains to be seen whether the ACA will be repealed. In the meantime, if you have additional questions about home health care providers, an experienced elder law attorney can help.
