When a patient starts treatment with a home health agency (HHA), it’s with the understanding that the HHA can provide all the necessary medical, nursing, rehabilitation, and social care right in the patient’s home. Every patient gets a personalized written plan that outlines the specific care and services they need, which is based on a thorough evaluation. This plan includes: 

  •  Which healthcare professional is responsible for different parts of the patient’s care. 
  • The health goals the patient aims to achieve through the plan. 
  • Details about educating the patient and their caregiver. 

Additionally, the care provided must align with the professional standards generally accepted in the healthcare field.
