Celebrate Home Health Care Month with Baker Rehab Group

Join us this month as we recognize and honor all caregivers, family, and friends that make home healthcare possible!

This year’s theme: “Home is the Center of Health Care.”
“This month we honor all the dedicated nurses, therapists, and aides who provide high-quality health care and supportive services in patients’ homes throughout the United States,” remarks Mr. Halamandaris, President of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC). “They make the difference between life and death on a daily basis and are the very personification of ‘caring’.”[1]

Home health care plays a significant role in caring for our aging seniors. Senior adults often wish to remain in their familiar surroundings as long as possible while also maintaining their independence. Home health care offers a solution for both. Senior adults can receive personalized care from caregivers and therapists right in their own home.

For many, home health care is also a more affordable option. Medicare pays nearly $2,000 per day for a hospital stay and $599 per day for a nursing home stay. Home health care, however, costs Medicare just an average of $44 a day.[2] That means senior adults can get a lot more bang for their health care buck!

Here at Baker Rehab Group, we provide in-home physical, occupational, and speech therapy. You can find more information on our webpage: www.bakerrehabgroup.com

Finally, help us celebrate by giving a big thank you to the caregivers in your life! We are so grateful for all of the nurses, therapists, aides, friends, and family members that care for our senior adults on a daily basis.
