The Eden Health Difference
Eden Health is proud to offer Home Care, Home Health, Palliative Care and Hospice all under one roof. This Continuum of Care provides our Agency the opportunity to build strong relationships with our patients and their families while providing the highest quality of care and support as they transition from one setting to another. Overall, each service line is focused on maintaining independence wherever one calls home, but the services they provide vary greatly. Take for instance, Home Care and Home Health services. While the two terms are used interchangeably outside the industry, the types of patients they serve have very different needs.
Eden Home Care provides non-medical services that help individuals go about their daily routine safely so that they are able to remain in their home without needing to transition to a higher level of care. Perhaps these clients are simply aging and need assistance living independently, or they have special needs or a disability. Whichever it may be, non-licensed caregivers and licensed certified nursing assistants assist them with a variety of Activities of Daily Living, including bathing, dressing, meal preparation, transportation, and companionship just to name a few. Eden’s caregivers undergo a minimum eight hours of annual training and carry CPR and First Aide Certification. They also undergo a local and national background check as well as a sex offender check.
Generally, Home Care services are not covered by insurance or Medicare; however, it is an inexpensive option when compared to other private-pay senior care services such as Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF) and Assisted Living/Independent Living Facilities (ALF/ILF). An average ALF can cost $148 a day, or upwards of $297 per day at a SNF. Eden Home Care is flexible with any budget and schedule. We provide as little as intermittent bath visits, 3-hour visits and provide all the way up to 24/7 live-in care requested by our clients across eight different states. Eden’s average in-home care costs between $50 to $180 per day.
On the other hand, Eden Home Health provides more specialized care for patients who have recently been discharged from the hospital or who are dealing with chronic medical conditions requiring intermittent skilled care in their home setting. Services such as Skilled Nursing, would care, medication management and teaching, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Medical Social Services and Home Health Aides are all provided by licensed healthcare professionals.
Eden Home Health’s goal is to prevent rehospitalization and help patients regain their mobility and independence. So, while these patients may only need hands-on care for a few months, their specialized healthcare team will leave them and their primary caregiver(s) with the education and tools needed to help them reach their maximum health potential at home. It is a compassionate, cost-effective alternative to inpatient care. Home Health requires a doctor’s referral/order and is covered by insurance, including Medicare, Medicaid, VA benefits and a variety of other third party commercial and Med-Advantage insurance plans.
Home Care and Home Health each have a different purpose, but at the end of the day, they both strive for the same goal: to keep patients happy, healthy, safe and comfortable in the familiarity of their home. At Eden Health, we are proud of the services we offer, but even more important than what we do is how we do it. We are committed to delivering the highest quality of care with integrity, dedication, and empathy. It’s the Eden Health Difference.
