Moorings Park Home Health Agency Celebrates National Home Care Month in November

November 01, 2012

HomeHealthIn honor of the nation’s home care professionals, Moorings Park Home Health Agency will join more than 2,200 home care agencies throughout Florida and tens of thousands more across the nation in kicking off the November celebration of National Home Care Month. The month-long celebration pays tribute to the dedicated home care professionals who enable elderly, disabled and chronically ill individuals to live their lives where they want to most – in their own homes.

“We believe that everyone deserves the best quality healthcare possible, and what better way to provide services than in the comfort of the client’s home” – Kass Hubbard, Moorings Park Home Health Administrator.

Every 13 seconds, another American turns 65 years old, a trend that will continue for the next 20 years. As the population ages, the home care industry will become increasingly important in the health care delivery system. Not only does home care offer the patient-preferred setting, it is also cost-effective. The average annual cost to Florida’s Medicaid program for home care services is $8,475 compared to $58,055 for nursing home care. Cost disparities are similar for Medicare-funded home health services — a hospital visit is ten times more expensive than what it costs for one home care visit.

“More than 2,200 home care agencies are serving more than 150,000 Floridians on any given day", said Bobby Lolley, Executive Director of the Home Care Association of Florida. “Whether the patient is receiving skilled care, such as nursing or therapy, or personal care or homemaker/companionship services, home care professionals’ ability to provide high-quality, cost-effective care delivered in the patient’s preferred setting is unparalleled in the health care industry.”
