Please contact our office for more information.

What is the difference between “skilled” and “unskilled” medical care?

“Unskilled” or “Non-medical” care typically refers to companion and personal care activities such as bathing, grooming, dressing, as well as assistance with meal preparation, light housekeeping, and running errands. It could also include medication reminders, assistance with ambulation, and transportation to medical appointments. These types of services are typically provided by Home Health Aides (HHAs) or Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), and can be arranged for anywhere from a few hours to 24-hours a day. “Unskilled” or “Non-medical” care is often sought by the elderly, new and expectant parents, individuals with disabilities, and those transitioning from a hospital or medical facility to home.

“Skilled” medical care follows a specific plan of care under the supervision of a Physician, Nurse (RN/LPN/LVN), or Therapist, and involves home healthcare services such as nursing care; physical, occupational, speech, and respiratory therapies; as well as social services. Skilled medical care in the home can help provide a comforting solution to residing in a hospital, nursing home, or assisted living community.

What is Home Healthcare?

Home healthcare is a wide range of health care services that can be given in your home for an illness or injury. Home healthcare is usually less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective as care you get in a hospital or skilled nursing facility (SNF). HealthNow will help you get better, regain your independence, and become as self-sufficient as possible.

HealthNow Home Healhcare personnel are available to answer the phone or fax 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays and weekends. An RN is also on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Call your local office with any questions or concerns you have!

How do I get started?

Submit an online request under Request Information or call our office, 1(888)808.5226 to get started.

Once the patient has been seen by a doctor, the doctor will determine if the patient will need home healthcare services. The doctor will send a referral to the HealthNow Home Healthcare.

The patient will receive a call from either our office staff or from the nurse or physical therapist who will be seeing the patient. A visit will then be scheduled within 24-48 hours from the patients discharge date.

A Registered Nurse or Physical Therapist will visit the patient in their home to assess present medical condition, take a medical history, determine their needs, review current medications, and provide important information about the patients care.
