What is Home Care:
Most of the long term treatment patients are happily availing the services at home than the hospitals. The basic reason is the ease of being at home and treatment cost is reduced to 1/3rd of the hospital cost.
Patients recovering from critical ailments or after trauma/surgeries take a longer time to recover and need professional medical care which is available in hospitals only. Staying in a hospital for a long time is usually not possible due to financial or family reasons. Such care is made possible through Home health care services in which medical facilities are provided to the patients in the comfort of their home. Doctor consultation, Nurses, General Duty Attendants, Elderly care, Laboratory tests, physiotherapy, etc. are readily available through these channels.
With an average increase of around 8% annually, the need for home care has seen a tremendous rise of approx. 20% in recent years.
