5 Home Health Care Myths Debunked

While home health care services are on the rise, to some, it is still an unknown concept. As a result, this keeps people from receiving the quality care that they need and deserve. In this post, we will debunk some common myths about home health care services.


Myth # 1


Home Healthcare is only for elderly people


Many people believe that home health care services are just for the aging population. While the elderly do benefit from having a home health aide, they are not the only demographic we serve. Quality of Life Home Health Care and Hospice serves individuals ages 21 and older.


Myth # 2


I am unable to trust a stranger in my home


Quality of Life Home Health Care and Hospice thoroughly screens and trains staff. Our processes ensure that you can trust the individual that will be in your home caring for you or your loved one.


Myth # 3


Using Home Health Care services means I will lose my independence


Many people desire to age in place, in the comfort of their own home. The purpose of home health care is to help maintain your independence for as long as possible, not to strip it away. Home healthcare services can help you safely manage daily tasks such as meal preparation, personal care and light housekeeping duties.


Myth # 4


I have a family caregiver so I do not need home healthcare


Although you may have a loved one caring for you, home healthcare can offer services beyond their scope. Your home healthcare provider can also lighten the stress of being the sole caregiver. Your loved one may also sign-on to become your home health aide if you desire.


Myth # 5


Home Health Care Services are unaffordable


Affordability is a common concern, however when compared to facility-based care, home healthcare can be an affordable alternative. Typically home healthcare is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and private-pay insurances, if you meet eligibility requirements.
