WHO NEEDS HOME HEALTHCARE AND CARENET’S SERVICES?
Across the U.S., home health care providers, such as CareNet Homecare Services, Inc., have made an impact in assisting homebound patients because they understand their unique medical conditions and the need of providing health care services at their own home.
Most of these people are unable to leave home except for brief period of time to seek treatment. Family members are willing to help but most of them time they lack medical knowledge or skills or tools to do so.
CareNet staff will assist homebound individuals and their families through skilled assessment, education, community resources and skilled care prescribed and coordinated by patient’s physician. The home health care services CareNet Homecare Services, Inc. provides are skilled nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, medical social worker and certified home health aide. The goal is to help the patients attain functional abilities and manage their diseases with the help of their family.
In addition, CareNet Homecare Services, Inc. have extended personal care services and specialized health care services to accommodate and personalize varied health care needs of clients and their family.
A patient is considered homebound and eligible to receive home health care services paid by Medicare when a physician certifies after a face to face encounter that the patient is confined at home and have medical condition that requires home health care services.
An individual does not have to be bedridden to be considered confined to the home. The condition of these patients, however, should be such where there is a normal inability to leave home and, consequently, leaving home would require a considerable and taxing effort. If the patient does in fact leave home, the patient is still considered homebound if the absences are infrequent or for a period of short duration.
Home healthcare services are considered medically necessary if the patient’s condition requires intermittent skilled nursing care or therapy services at home.
