Conditions to Qualify for Home Care

To qualify for Home Care:

  1. Your doctor must decide that you need medical care at home and make a plan for your care at home.
  2. You must need intermittent skilled nursing care, physical therapy, speech-language therapy or to continue occupational therapy.
  3. You must be homebound, or normally unable to leave home without help. To be homebound means that leaving home takes considerable and taxing effort. You can be homebound and still leave home for medical treatment or short, infrequent absences for non-medical reasons, such as trips to a barber or church. A need for adult day care doesn’t keep you from getting home health care.

West Georgia Home Care is Medicare and Medicaid certified.
