Help navigating the healthcare system – A vital component of home health care is the support and education given to the families and caregivers who are caring for the patient.  Our staff will work closely with all members of the patient’s circle, helping them understand what resources are available to provide additional help, and helping the caregivers know how to provide the best care at home.

Saves the Patient and Family Money

The alternatives for home health care are hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and outpatient rehab centers. Home Health is less expensive, more convenient than, and just as effective as care you get in a hospital, skilled nursing facility, or outpatient rehab center. In fact, home health care is covered by Medicare, and at Inspiration Home Health we never charge our patients for any services we provide.
