Home health is designed for patients recovering from illness, injury or surgery. In most cases, home health successfully returns a patient to independence while also helping to prevent a return to the hospital. Sometimes, however, patients and families find that home health treatment options are no longer helping. At that point the focus may shift toward emphasizing comfort and improving quality of life instead of recovery. That’s when it may be time to consider hospice care:

I called once to make an inquiry and they never said they'd be sharing mycontact information with other places, within an hour I started receiving solicitation calls from homes. The homes finally stopped calling but a place for mom continued to email and call after I told them to never contact us, they’ve been blocked on email and yet continue to call my phone. My mom passed away 4 months ago and this awful company is STILL calling us. Whatever you do call anyone but this harassing company, they’ll never leave you alone, even after your loved one is dead.

The idea is a good one. The "advisor" I got was horrible. She did give me a little list of places to contact. But that was the extent of this so-called service. She didn't follow up. I emailed her about one horrible place she sent me, the state of Missouri has this facility under an action plan every single month. I told her about what it was like inside there with those poor people and she didn't even respond!! She sent me what is supposed to be helpful hints about 3 weeks into my own search. What a rip off for the companies who pay for this. I have never heard from this woman since the day I called for help.
