How do I find home care for my loved one?

When a loved one requires medical care, many questions and concerns arise. Can the medical care be received in the home or is a nursing facility or some other institutional care required? Who can provide these services? Where do I find information?

Virtually every type of healthcare short of surgery can be performed in the home. Today millions of Americans benefit from oxygen therapy, wheelchairs, skilled nursing, sleep therapy, infusion therapy, diabetes supplies, hospice, and other medical services, supplies, and equipment at home.

The American Association for Homecare has created a webpage with resources and information to help you navigate these questions. Please visit for more information or see
