Medical home care, on the other hand, is typically given for a shorter amount of time. Medical home care includes Physical therapy, nursing, occupational therapy.
It is more common to use medical home care after a hospitalization.
Sometimes, patients require a physical therapist visit to help get their strength back. Other times a nurse will visit to give medications or check on catheters/wound/bandages etc. However, the goal of medical home care is to “graduate”.
