There is a growing need for home health and home care services in the Bay Area and throughout the nation.
Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) May 11, 2011
Professional Healthcare at Home, a leading provider of home nursing, rehabilitation therapy, hospice care, and personal home care services in Northern California, has opened an additional, Medicare-approved office in San Rafael to provide care to families in Marin County. “There is a growing need for home health and home care services in the Bay Area and throughout the nation,” explains John Griscavage, CEO. “We are pleased to offer the highest quality care to more families in the region.”
As a full service home health agency, the company assists those who are recovering from illness or injury, or having age-related memory or mobility difficulties. “As a Medicare-certified agency, our clinicians can provide physician-prescribed nursing and therapy care in a patient’s home setting, which is often more comfortable than visits to a medical office or facility,” continues Griscavage. “Medicare patients are sometimes unaware that they can request a home health care prescription from their doctors. Our company can provide insurance information and advice on skilled home care, hospice care, and non-medical services.” Non-medical caregiver services are often needed when seniors are having challenges with activities of daily living, but prefer to remain in their own homes as long as possible. While Medicare does not generally cover this type of care, certain insurances and veterans’ benefits provide some coverage.
