Skilled Home Healthcare Services

As the percentage of the population in the U.S. over age 65 grows, the need for more skilled care intensifies. For example, more Medicare patients are hospitalized for heart failure than any other diagnosis. Many patients are hospitalized again and again. Yet, multiple studies indicate that home health services can reduce the incidence of re-hospitalization and the cost of care, and help enhance the patient’s quality of life.

If you are recovering from an illness or injury, your physician may recommend home healthcare to return you to an active lifestyle. Skilled services through Professional Healthcare can help you and your family have peace of mind about getting high-quality care in the comfort of your home.
