Resources for Home Health Care

At MedCare HMC we strive to provide resources for home health patients needing care as well as their friends, families and caregivers who provide care.

Many health care treatments that were once offered only in a hospital or a doctor's office can now be done in your home. Home health care helps you get better, regain your independence, and become as self-sufficient as possible. Medicare pays for you to get health care services in your home if you meet certain eligibility criteria and if the services are considered reasonable and necessary for the treatment of your illness or injury.

We will be adding additional resources soon.

For friends and family members of those requiring home health care, we offer helpful resources & articles.
