FAQs

What Is Home Health Care?

Home health care, also known as “home health,” is where skilled care is brought to you in the familiarity of your own space. Our dedicated team of professional care specialists, from compassionate nurses to caring aides, is here to support you in managing and treating your health concerns with a gentle touch. Whether you reside in a private home, an adult foster home, an assisted living facility, a long-term nursing home, or a memory care residence, our services can reach you wherever you call home. We tailor our care to suit your unique needs and situation, ensuring you receive the best support.

At our agency, we specialize in providing comprehensive home care services tailored to meet the diverse needs of our clients. Our team comprises skilled professionals, with Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) offering the highest level of care among our staff.

Levels of Care:

  • Certified Nurse Assistants (CNA) or Home Health Aides (HHA): Entry-level caregivers assisting with daily activities and personal care.
  • Geriatric Nurse Assistants (GNA): Providing intermediate care beyond basic assistance.
  • Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN): Offering skilled nursing care, representing the pinnacle of our services.
  • Certified Medical Technicians (CMTs): While skilled, they exclusively operate within medical facilities, not in-home settings.

License Level and Services:

We are licensed as a level 3 Residential Service Agency, enabling us to deliver advanced services such as wound care, ventilator support, tube feeding, and skilled nursing interventions. Please note that LPNs, GNAs, and CMTs are exclusively deployed in Maryland for service provision.

Our commitment to quality care ensures that our clients receive specialized attention from dedicated professionals, enhancing their well-being and fostering a supportive environment within the comfort of their own homes.

What Are Some Common Home Health Care Diagnoses?

Home health care can assist with a variety of common conditions. If you don’t spot your condition or that of your loved one on the list above, please reach out to our compassionate home health care team. We’re here to listen, understand your unique situation, and explore how we can tailor our services to meet your needs. Explore some of the conditions that this type of care supports:

  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Emphysema
  • Pneumonia or other serious illnesses
  • Asthma
  • COPD
  • Cancer
  • Stroke
  • Joint replacement or surgery
  • Broken limbs or other serious injuries

Is Home Health Care the Same as Home Care?

While these services may seem alike at first glance, there are key differences to note. Home health care stands out as it is delivered by licensed medical professionals, bringing a professional touch to your care journey. This specialized form of care extends its support to a wide range of health issues, including physical therapy, post-operative care, as well as the management of conditions like Alzheimer’s, dementia, and chronic illnesses. One difference to note is that home health leans more towards the medical side of care while home care is additional support; at SmithLife Homecare, we mainly provide home care, and our highest level of care is home health. So, rest assured, with home health care, you’re not just receiving care at home but expert care from dedicated professionals who prioritize your well-being and comfort.

How Does Home Health Care Manage Chronic Illnesses?

We value the well-being of individuals and understand the significance of offering both care and education to enhance their quality of life. Our dedicated care team follows a three-step approach to ensure our clients receive the support they need:

  1. Understanding and Support

In the initial assessment phase, our home health care team takes the time to grasp the concerns and aspirations outlined by the physician for each client. We engage with the individual to gain insights into their living environment and conduct thorough physical assessments, including vital signs, skin checks, and other tests. We also ensure the safety of the home. Our clinicians personalize these assessments to align closely with client’s unique goals and needs.

  1. Collaborative Goal Setting

Through the admission process, our nurses collaborate with clients to craft personalized care plans aimed at achieving their desired outcomes. We prioritize active involvement from you and your family in the care planning and goal-setting process, fostering a sense of ownership and empowerment.

  1. Enhancing Outcomes and Preventing Rehospitalizations

Our primary goal is to minimize hospitalizations among our clients by focusing on tailored strategies such as:

  • Symptom monitoring and management
  • Patient and family education on chronic conditions
  • Implementing home safety enhancements
  • Medication management
  • Provision of physical, occupational, or speech therapy
  • Delivering skilled nursing care
  • Establishing effective communication with the client’s primary care provider
  • And more

Through these steps, we aim to address immediate needs and pave the way for a healthier, more fulfilling life for those under our care.
