What is Home Health

What is Home Health

Home health care is an often preferred alternative to institutional care. It provides individuals with the nursing and therapeutic assistance that they need to recover from an illness or injury, head home after a NICU stay or manage a chronic health condition safely and in the comfort of home.

Salus Homecare Salt Lake City’s long term health care is a preferred choice when more permanent medical conditions are present.

Short term home health care is appropriate when home monitoring and medical assistance are needed to support a medically fragile child or adult. This type of care usually lasts for a few days, weeks or months, and it can make it safe for an individual to return home sooner while still receiving the proper level of assistance to stay healthy and safe.

Therapists support medical directives and enhance the healing process. In home therapy offers the additional advantage of allowing therapists to see clients in the comfort of home and observe elements of everyday life that might impact their health and independence.
