Home Care vs Home Health
Home health and home care are two separate categories of care and two different licenses as granted by the Department of Community Health of Georgia; both are provided in a home environment, but most people don't understand the differences between the two. As a result, these two phrases are typically used interchangeably. The main difference is that “home care” is a non-clinical care, which we provide, while “home health” is clinical, which we do not provide.
We do not provide home health.
In home health care is clinical medical care provided by a registered nurse (RN), occupational therapist, physical therapist or any other skilled medical professional. This is often recommended as part of a at home plan following hospitalization and is considered "clinical" or "skilled." This is medical in nature, akin to things that might happen in a hospital and includes: therapy and clinical nursing services, administration of medications (including injections), medical tests, monitoring of health status, and wound care.
We do provide home care.
Home care, provided by caregivers, is what we do. Our home care aides are trained to understand the nuances of working with the elderly and those with special life situations, like dementia. Our home care professionals aide in activities of daily living like: bathing and dressing, incontinent care, mobility support, housekeeping, meal preparation, laundry, medication reminders, and errands. Unlike home health, home care is categorized as personal care or companion care, and is considered “non-clinical.”
