Working with only the name and address of home health care providers is just not enough information for many patients and their families
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) January 14, 2009
With America's ever aging population, hospitals and families face a challenge when addressing the needs of seniors who prefer to live at home or who return home after a hospital discharge and need post-acute care assistance. Home Care Finder® released by Seattle-based Total Living Choices (http://www.TLChoices.com) offers hospitals, patients and families a new choice when it comes to making those important home health care decisions.
This is the first free web-based software program that allows seniors and their families to search and connect with home care providers based on criteria such as care needs, payment options and available languages.
Home Care Finder was created for seniors who need help with activities of daily living. Total Living Choices is dedicated to linking patients and their families with home health and home care solutions.
"Our research shows that more and more people want to stay at home with assistance rather than move to a new location," stated Ted Tanase, Total Living Choices' founder and CEO.
Home Care Finder is the third free web-based program launched by Total Living Choices that provides assistance to those who can no longer live at home alone. It is a search and select program that includes every licensed home health (medical), home care (non-medical), hospice, and private duty nursing company in the U.S.
Families enter their Quality of Care needs and Quality of Life wants on-line and Home Care Finder locates those companies and providers whose services meet their criteria. Users view companies and can connect to them online with one "click".
"Working with only the name and address of home health care providers is just not enough information for many patients and their families," said Tanase. "Users want to access details about services such as dispensing medication, foreign language ability, meal preparation and transportation. Home Care Finder is the perfect resource that allows patients and their families to make the choice that best fits individual needs."
Data is continually being gathered and added to the Home Care Finder database, providing detailed information from the approximately 25,000 licensed companies nation-wide, and available information on non-licensed home care providers. Home care providers can update their service information or add themselves to the free database simply by completing a survey at http://www.TLChoices.com.
Total Living Choices is a leading healthcare enterprise software company whose products and services bring together healthcare providers, hospitals, post-acute providers, and patients/families resulting in financial and social benefits for hospitals and providers and increased patient/family education and satisfaction.
