handsNovember is Home Health and Hospice Month. If you or a loved one is seeking home health care, here are some questions to ask when talking to a prospective home health provider:

  • How long has this provider been serving the community?
  • Does this provider include the patient and his or her family members in developing the plan of care?
  • Does this provider take time to educate family members on the care being administered to the patient?
  • Who can the patient and his or her family members call with questions or complaints? How does the agency follow up on and resolve problems?
  • How does this provider ensure patient confidentiality?
