Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is home health care?

     

    Home health care is a service provided on an intermittent basis wherever the patient calls home. In order to qualify for home health care, a patient must be essentially homebound (unable to leave home without causing a taxing effort) and under the care of a physician.

    The ultimate goal of home health care is to rehabilitate patients and assist with the management of their chronic disease state. Mid-Delta Home Health works with the patient's doctor or certified nurse practioner to coordinate and provide the care recommended.

  • What are the benefits of home health care?

     

    Home health allows the patient to remain at home in the comfort of familiar surroundings because family members can be involved in the treatment and healing process.

  • What is hospice care?

     

    Hospice care is a specialized end-of-life palliative care recommended for patients when it becomes clear that comfort rather than cure is the primary focus.

  • What are the benefits of hospice care?

     

    Hospice allows the patient to remain in the comfort of his or her place of residence with family and friends for the duration of life.

    Hospice provides emotional and spiritual support for everyone affected by the illness.

    Hospice also provides the patient with medications, medical supplies and equipment related to the terminal illness, and homemaker services. After the loss, bereavement support and counseling are available for up to one year.

  • How does one obtain home health or hospice care?

     

    Anyone may make a referral; however, a physician must order home health/hospice care services. You have the right to choose your home health/hospice care provider.

  • What is a home health and hospice care team?

     

    It is a multi disciplinary group of qualified health care professionals who ensure the patient receives the highest level of quality services.
