The Many Benefits of Home Health Care
Today, more and more patients are turning to Home Health Care for continuous recovery and enhanced health for a variety of situations. When given a chance, anyone would prefer his own home instead of a nursing home, an assisted living facility or a retirement center. Surely this is what family members would want for their own elderly, ailing or disabled loved one. This need for home-based health care is one of the major reasons why your company has materialized. Your line of work is now an unquestionable part of the healthcare system and it is imperative that you staff your company with competent home health care professionals to maintain your quality standards.
Who benefits from Home Health Care? Individuals who fall in at least one of these categories can surely gain positive outcomes from home health services:
- Recently discharged from the hospital
- Require regular or intermittent rehabilitative therapy
- Rendered homebound by the physician due to illness or disability
- Rendered homebound because of old age and extreme mobility limitations
Your patient or your family member could be one of them and might not have considered Home Health Care until recently. With the help of Premier Care and Staffing Services, Inc. you can definitely find more convenient and affordable options for care in your home.
How Home Health Care Improves Your Health
Because home health care is specially designed for residential treatment, the patient or the client is no longer required to travel to and from the medical care center just to receive nursing care, therapy or medical social services. Instead, the home health care professional will conduct scheduled visits to the patient at home thus reducing travel time and most importantly, cutting down the stress that is associated with travelling while ill.
Home Health Care is also less costly compared to long-term care admission in a care facility or hospitalization. These and so much more reasons have made Home Health Care the highly preferred option for both individuals and healthcare professionals.
Premier Care and Staffing Services, Inc. understands what it takes for the patient to recover or effectively manage health in the home setting. It is predominantly dependent on the professional who is assigned to your care. Our company specializes in people – in finding and hiring people. For Home Health Care, we look for licensed and experienced professionals in these disciplines:
- Certified Nursing Assistants
- Occupational Therapist

Premier Care and Staffing Services, Inc. can also accept referrals from healthcare professionals and will immediately take the task of finding the nurse, therapist or home health aide to visit your patient at home.
Staffing for Home Health Care Agencies and Private Clients has always been one of our strong suits. If you want to secure your health or that of your patient, count on our team to find you the most qualified individuals to fill the gaps in your personnel staffing.
Residential Health Care Still Requires Rigid Employee Screening
Even in the informal setting of a client’s home, home health care professionals are still expected to conduct themselves accordingly. Nurses, therapists, case managers and aides need to exhibit expertise and put their experience to use when tasked with care functions that are outlined by the client’s physician.
Premier Care and Staffing Services, Inc. sees to it that the professionals you deploy to your clients’ homes are fully trained and educated to fulfill those care functions. Our Employee Screening process includes the following procedures in selecting qualified personnel:
- State Required Health Screenings
- CPR and First Aid Certifications
- Drug Screening Tests
- Criminal Background Check
- Personal Interview
- License Verification for Professional Practice
- Reference Checks via Phone or Email
Prior to placement, a potential employee will be subjected to a job orientation that will either be conducted by Premier Care and Staffing Services, Inc. or your home health care company. If you would like to work with us in forming your home health care team, please contact us today!
