Getting Started with Home Health
Quality Care for Greater Independence
If you’re new to home health, The Independence Center can help guide you through the process of finding quality care for yourself or a loved one.
What is Home Health Care?
The goal of home health care is to help individuals with illness, injury, or other disability live independently in their own homes. Caregivers assist with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, toileting, mobility, transferring, and eating.
How can The Independence Center help?
As a local nonprofit with over 30 years of experience serving people with disabilities, we offer both traditional physician-directed (skilled) and client-directed (unskilled) services. We offer our clients assistance in choosing how and when they receive these services, along with their choice of caregiver. They may request a family member or friend as their caregiver. Or they can choose one of our available skilled caregivers, including RNs, LPNs, CNAs, Personal Care Attendants (PCAs), and Homemakers.
How do I pay for care?
Many of our clients receive home health care benefits through the State Medicaid plan or certain Medicaid waivers. For those who do not qualify for Medicaid, we also accept long-term care insurance and private pay. If you would like more information about Medicaid benefits or need application assistance, please contact our Benefits Department.
