What is the difference between home health and personal home care assistance?

Mar 14, 2017, 16:23 PM

The difference between home health and personal home care assistance is the necessity for skilled services. Home health care requires skilled services that would come from a physician’s order. This includes things like registered nurses, physical therapy and occupational therapy.

Personal care assistance involves unskilled services that are typically paid for through private pay (not paid by insurance). These services include help around the house, transportation, bathing and some light meal preparation.
