BAYADA Home Health Care at Bayhealth—a joint venture of Bayhealth and industry leader BAYADA Home Health Care—provides supervised in-home health care services to help clients get better and remain safe and independent in their own home.
BAYADA Home Health Care at Bayhealth is committed to providing the highest quality care with compassion, excellence, and reliability and is certified by Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP), the leading accrediting organization for the home health care industry.
Short-term services include in-home nursing and therapy for adults and seniors to help them manage chronic conditions or recover from a recent illness, injury, or hospitalization.
Professional care teams may include nurses, therapists, home health aides, and medical social workers. They are specially trained, skilled, and equipped to educate clients and their family caregivers about medical conditions and how to manage their health to avoid an unnecessary hospitalization.
All BAYADA Home Health Care at Bayhealth clients undergo an initial comprehensive health assessment that guides the development of a customized, client-centered plan of care. The home health care team communicates with the client and their health care providers to ensure that care is delivered according to the doctor’s orders, and they keep doctors updated on their patients’ progress.
Following a hospital stay, the home health care team:
- Reviews the client’s discharge instructions
- Educates the client (and client’s family or other lay caregiver) on all current medications (including prescriptions, over-the-counter-medications, and supplements)
- Ensures the client has all of the medical equipment, community resources, and educational tools required to remain safe at home
- Ensures the client makes a follow-up appointment with their doctor
Home health care services are covered by Medicare and some commercial insurance. BAYADA Home Health Care at Bayhealth also handles insurance-related tasks and determines what charges the client may be responsible for before services begin.
