How do I know if the home health agency I choose is reputable and provides top quality care?
Home health care agencies that are Medicare certified, state licensed, and accredited are reviewed and audited on a regular basis, which means they must meet high standards. All staff and volunteers should be carefully screened, trained, and supervised. It is your right to ask for this information. You should be selective about anyone you invite into your home to provide care for you or your loved one. The best way to select a home health care provider is to call and speak with someone from the agency.
