In-Home Skilled Care 101


It all starts with a skilled health care need, a homebound patient, and a physician’s orders.

If you’ve had to make a visit to the hospital, are chronically ill, or need therapy services, your physician may order skilled care provided by an RN or LPN for you. It’s very exciting to know that many services that could only be performed in a hospital can be delivered in the comfort of your own home. Although, not all situations are eligible for in-home skilled health care, when it is available, in-home skilled care helps you get better, regain your independence, and become as self-sufficient as possible.

To receive In-Home Skilled Medical Care there are three main criteria that must be met before care can be provided;

1.       There must be a medical need.

2.       The care must be ordered by and overseen by your physician.

3.       Medicare requires you to be “homebound” to receive in-home skilled care.

As an in-home skilled care patient, you have the freedom to choose your desired in-home skilled care agency.
