In the state of Texas, there are 2,100 licensed home health agencies, of which 612 are in the Dallas area. That’s a lot of options! So how do you choose a well-regarded agency that offers the services you need.
We wanted to share some helpful information from the medicare.gov website about how to navigate your home health choices. They suggest taking these steps:
- Find home health agency services in your area that provide the services you need, like nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology services, social services, and home health services.
- Compare the quality of the home health agencies you’re considering using 2 kinds of quality ratings. One rating uses 8 quality measures to compare how agencies perform and the other rating comes directly from patients who got care from the agency. (Check out MaximaCare’s great quality scores.)
- Use this checklist to help you choose a home health agency that best meets your needs.
