Home Services & Home Health Care

Home Services agencies provide personal non-medical services such as cleaning, cooking, bathing, grooming, and toileting.  These services are NOT covered by traditional Medicare though they may be covered by Medicare Advantage and/or state programs. Home Health Care agencies provide skilled nursing, therapy, medical supplies, and medical social services to your home.  Medicare generally covers home health services when they are ordered by a physician.
