As we age, we often live with chronic illnesses such as diabetes, congestive heart failure (CHF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other long-term illnesses that increase our frailty. Sometimes we have more than one of these illnesses, which increases the risk of a major negative health event. These can land us in hospital or a nursing home…which rapidly becomes very expensive.
Home health care can be a very effective way to manage chronic illnesses and control the cost of healthcare. Care at Home’s Transition Management and Chronic Care Management specialty programs help our patients maintain optimal health and manage their illnesses to minimize the chance of expensive hospitalizations. In addition to skilled nursing and therapy services to manage specific symptoms, our evidence-based care management programs educate and coach patients and monitor progress, under their doctor’s supervision.
These clinical services may be covered by Medicare and other health insurance. Care at Home helps San Francisco Bay Area patients minimize hospitalizations, transition more effectively from hospital, and manage chronic illness to lower healthcare costs. Our high quality patient outcomes show why doctors, hospitals and families choose Care at Home for their home health needs.
