Returning to your home after a stay in the hospital can be challenging. Additional support is often needed to continue recovery and prevent a return to the hospital. Home Care can play an important role in your recovery process, helping you to stay healthy, happy and comfortable in your own home.
Home Health Care after surgery is typically less expensive and more convenient than staying in a hospital or rehabilitation facility. According to national surveys, it's what most people say they would choose if additional help were needed.
