• Timeframe/Discharge Planning

  • Medicare services are intermittent meaning not every day.  While there are some situations where services can be continued for several 60-day periods of care, the healthcare professionals are only in the home 1-3 days per week, up to one hour per visit. Families and caregivers are still the primary source of long term care for their loved ones at home. One of the most important duties of the home care clinical staff is to instruct the caregivers on the information and resources they will need to successfully manage and care for their loved one. Discharge planning begins with the first visit, so the clinical team will coordinate services and information, so the patient and caregivers will be well informed to continue care long after the home health care team has discharged.
