Care homes

Whether you're having surgery and need help caring for yourself while you recover, or you have a chronic illness and need help caring for yourself long term, care homes services may be an option.

More and more, health care providers are telling people who need continued care that the best place to receive that care is in the comfort of their own home. But to receive quality assistance, it's important to understand the role of home care, how to find home care services and what questions to ask so that you hire the home care agency that's right for you.

The first step to finding a home care service is to talk to your doctor about what services you'll need. You may only require an occasional visit from a nurse to administer medication, or you may need more elaborate medical care.

If you're planning to receive financial assistance from the government or your insurance company, make sure the services you need are covered. Often home care is covered by insurance for a limited period of time.
