Home Care Nursing FAQs
Choosing Home Care Services for your loved ones, or for yourself can be very difficult. All in All Home Care Registered Nurses meet with the client as care partners to design a plan of care to meet the individual needs of each client. Below you will find the most commonly asked questions about home health care services.
What is home health?
“Home health” refers to medical services provided at the patient’s residence. The residence can be a private home or assisted living facility. The home health services typically include skilled nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, medical social work and in-home aide. Home health may also include medical equipment and supplies.
Who provides home care?
When family or friends can’t meet all of a person’s care needs, there are basically two types of people who provide home care. There are paid health professionals who are state licensed, and work per orders of your doctor. These include nurses or therapist. The second type includes aides, and companions who are there to help with activities of daily living so you can stay in your home, independently for as long as possible.
What types of services can be provided by All in All Home Care?

Who can order Home Care Services for my loved one?
If my loved one is in the hospital, who can assist me in getting home care for them?
The physician, hospital discharge planner/case manager, and or the nurse.
Are the home health workers insured while coming to my home?
Yes. All staff members are fully insured. In addition, all are fully bonded against theft.
How long does home care last?
There is no set length of time for home care—it can vary greatly based on a person’s unique needs. Some home care services may last for a few weeks, while others may be lifelong. If a physician is prescribing your home care, he or she will oversee services until your recovery goals are met. However, if you are making the decision to start home care on your own, you can determine how many hours a week of care you need, and how often. Some home care providers may have a minimum hourly commitment to start care, or require you to sign a contract for a certain duration of time, so it’s important to ask any provider you consider

How much do home care services cost?
Every person is different, especially when it comes to health and what type of home care is needed. The exact cost of care needs to be based on listening to you, your family, your doctor, and observing your individual situation.
We recommend an initial in-home care evaluation for each individual client. Often, these evaluations are done by the local Interim HealthCare office at no charge. Based on the in-home evaluation, a service plan is then developed to best meet the needs of the individual. It can include a little bit of assistance up to around-the-clock assistance.
Charges are fairly based on quality care and individual needs.Please call our office a call to schedule an in-home evaluation or to request more information at 703-278-2475 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
