It is important before starting a home care business to understand the difference between starting a Skilled Home Health Care and a Non-Medical Home Care Agency.
Below are the primary differences between the two.
A Non-Medical Home Care Agency engages with individuals to assist with daily living activities such as meal preparation, housekeeping and personal care.
Some agencies provide transportation services to individuals in their care.
These services are important for seniors to remain safe and comfortable in their homes. The most common form of payment for non-medical care includes private pay rather than 3rd party billing sources.
Within a Skilled Home Health Agency, skilled licensed nursing and rehab therapy services are administered under physicians’ orders with guidelines that must be followed precisely.
Skilled Home Health Agencies require licensures including Medicare and Medicaid certifications.
