Home Health Care 101
Thank you for taking a moment to learn about what it means to be homebound and how home health care can provide treatment in the comfort of familiar surroundings.
Most important is to realize home health care is a temporary situation while you are being restored to your strongest self and that you must be under the care of a doctor to receive services.
Ohana Home Health provides temporary support through skilled services. The temporary part is very important. We do not provide private nursing or long-term care. Skilled services include physical, speech and occupational therapies; nursing, behavioral health and home safety assessments.
Remember, you must have a physician’s referral to utilize our services and we do not cover outpatient services. An “outpatient” is a patient who receives medical treatment without being admitted to a hospital.
Once we receive your physician’s referral, we send in one of our healthcare team to perform an assessment, which is a big word for a simple head-to-toe evaluation used to develop a care plan based on your needs. Once we have your plan of care we schedule therapists to visit your home.
