What is Home Health?

Home health or as per the title, Phoenix Home Health, refers to the home healthcare services paid for by Medicare. This may be of interest to many people looking for a little extra help around the house, who have issues with their activities of daily living or with family members who are interested or are currently helping out as caregivers. Many people are unfamiliar with the term activities of daily living or ADLs. The ADLs in regards to home health in Phoenix are being able to shower oneself, being able to get dressed, bathe, make meals, clean the house, use the restroom and anything else around the house that you must be able to do to live independently.

Is Phoenix Home Health the same as ALTCS?

Phoenix home health and ALTCS (Arizona Long Term Care) are different. ALTCS is through Arizona’s Medicaid program while home health is paid for by medicare. An individual might be eligible for both depending upon the health diagnose and their financial situation. Additionally, there is generally help available through the Veterans Administration. It may seem like a bunch of options to sort through, but we have no problem directing you to the right benefit/benefits.
