As the challenges surrounding COVID-19 continue to impact the ways that health care services are delivered across the country, many members of high-risk populations are searching for new ways to increase social distancing and avoid leaving home. At Nye Health Services, we offer a variety of Home Health Services that allow you to replace many in-office appointments with personalized services in the comfort and safety of your own home. 


What Is Home Health Care? 

During a year when you may be reluctant to attend medical appointments at a physical location, especially if you are still living in your own home or in an independent or assisted living community, we are offering more options for handling various types of medical services at home than ever.

With our unique Home Health Care program, our fully-licensed and Medicare-certified nursing and therapy staff members are equipped to meet a variety of needs within the comfort and safety of your own home. Our home health care staff can assist with recuperation, rehabilitation, and education to help you regain your health and independence in a safe way. 

Some of the most common types of services that can be provided at home include:

  • Physical and occupational therapy
  • Administration of prescription medications
  • Medical testing
  • Health monitoring
  • Caring for wounds 

Home Health Care is especially common after an injury or hospitalization, but it can also be a long term solution for those who are facing the progression of a chronic condition. Another important aspect to Home Health Care is providing education on how to manage new illnesses and how to take steps towards the prevention of further health complications.


How Can Home Health Care Improve My Quality of Life? 

Choosing Home Health Care has a variety of benefits for both your physical and mental health. First and foremost, it is one of the most customizable types of health care available. With the flexibility to receive as much or as little care as you need, you can meet both short-term and ongoing care needs at your convenience.

Home Health Care is also a helpful option that can help lower the amount of times that you need to leave home during a time when it is less safe to do so than normal. Elderly and other high-risk populations are especially vulnerable to concerns related to COVID-19, and moving as many appointments to your home as it helps to increase social distancing and minimize the number of people you come in contact with.

This can also relieve stress for your family members, who may worry about the increased risk of attending in-person appointments outside your home.


Home Health Care Coverage

Like any unfamiliar type of health care service, it is important to understand how your specific health insurance company handles Home Health Care before scheduling an appointment. Fortunately, many Home Health Care appointments can be subsidized by most insurance companies and other public or private options to make your health care more affordable.

Some of the additional options that may be available to you if you have limited funds include Medicaid, veterans benefits, or a reverse mortgage. There are many possible sources of funding for Home Health Care, and speaking with one of our community representatives is the best way to get more details about the public and private companies that we most often work with.


At Nye Health Services, we prioritize helping you get the care you need without sacrificing safety during a time when you may prefer to avoid leaving home. Our Home Health Care services make a variety of at-home treatment options available for residents throughout Nebraska.
