Home Care Facts
Home health care can be the ideal route for your patients, with the best possible medical outcomes in the most cost-effective manner. At Iowa Home Care we serve a diverse group of clients, but there are often common denominators. Please think of home health care first when your patient is recovering from a surgery (including hip, knee and shoulder replacements) or is disabled or chronically ill (diabetes, stroke, heart disease, COPD, or mental illness, for example).
Home health care is effective. 80% of American seniors have one chronic health condition, and 50% have two. Home health care has a proven track record of helping manage their conditions, reducing Emergency Room visits and hospital readmissions.
Home health care is also efficient. The average home health care Medicare visit costs $150, while the average day in a hospital costs $4,500. Or, for example, for a pediatric cancer patient, using home health care saves approximately $14,000 per month!
Better care. Better costs. Iowa Home Care.
