Freedom Home Care to participate in home care panel discussion at VINE – March 17, 2017Back to Blog Home
WHAT DO HOME HEALTH AGENCIES DO AND HOW DO I CHOOSE THE ONE THAT’S BEST FOR ME?
Friday, March 17
10:30 am to 12:00 pm
Representatives from Blue Earth County Public Health and five home care and home health care agencies, including Freedom Home Care, will be on a panel moderated by VINE staff on the topic of choosing the best home care agency for your needs.
More and more of us find that we need assistance as we age. Home care agencies can help with house cleaning, errand running, bathing, medication set-up, and respite care. But where does one start in selecting the right one and how does one know which agency is the best fit? Learn about the difference between skilled nursing and companion services, the cost associated with various services, the circumstances that will allow for Medicare payment for services, and factors to consider when selecting an agency for yourself or a loved one. There will be an opportunity for questions and answers.
Cost: No charge for members; $5 for non-members.
Call the VACC at (507) 386-5586 by March 16, 2017 for a reservation.
