The Young At Heart Center in Rock Springs is pleased to announce the availability of home health care. The goal of the YAH Home Health Care agency is to help patients recuperate at home and to remain independent at home for as long as possible. As insurance companies strive to reduce costs, standards have been set for how long a person may stay at the hospital for certain procedures or illnesses. Unfortunately not everyone recovers at the same speed.
Rather than have people go home from a hospital to try to care for themselves or to have to go into a rehabilitation facility, home health care can provide skilled nursing services along with personal care from certified nursing aides, physical therapy, and other services to the person in his/her own home. Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance will often cover the complete cost of home care.
Numerous studies have shown that people who are ill, have suffered an injury or who have had recent surgery, recover more quickly in their home environment. The cost for nursing home care can be prohibitive for someone who just needs assistance with bathing, dressing, or light meal preparation. Sometimes simple strengthening exercises are all that is needed to help someone regain their independence.
The YAH Home Health Care agency will provide care to adults 18 years and older. A doctor's order is required for services. Our office can assist you in obtaining an order.
