Home Health Jobs in NY
Homecare is health care or supportive care provided in the home of a patient or client by a professional caregiver. This form of care is also called domiciliary, social, or in-home care.
Home health care is a range of health care services provided in your home for an illness or injury and typically involves less cost, greater convenience, and equivalent effectiveness as care you would get in a hospital or skilled nursing facility.
In-home care is any professional support service that allows a person to live safely in their home. Aides, nurses and therapists provide short-term or long-term care in the home depending on the need.
There are three tiers of home health care nurses. The highest tier is RNs, who are licensed registered nurses. Next come LVNs, Licensed Vocational Nurses. Next come nurse assistants, who do not need a degree, and take care of the daily needs of their patients.
