Home Care - Skilled
By “home care” medical professionals (in New York State) usually mean “skilled care” provided by a Certified Home Healt h Agency (CHHA) in the home of the patient and performed by a registered nurse or licensed therapist (physical, occupational, speech, nutrition). When a physician orders these services, Medicare or private insurance generally pays for them.
The patient (or family) chooses the agency, usually based on geographic location and recommendations.
When you select a home health agency (CHHA) for someone with a serious progressive illness, it is useful to consider the prognosis and the need for care across the continuum of the illness. The following CHHAs provide or are affiliated with palliative care and hospice services.
In addition to the providers/resources listed below, New York State Department of Health lists a total of 19 CHHAs serving Westchester County.
