There's no place like home. For many patients, that's just what the doctor may order for a speedy recovery. Home health care, provided by Jefferson Health Home Care and Hospice, is a service for persons who are too sick or disabled to care for themselves, but well enough not to be admitted to a hospital or nursing home. Studies indicate that patients who stay at home, or return home to recover, may get better more quickly.
