What is home health care?
Home health care includes a range of services available for people who need support to live at home. Services include personal care, household management, nursing treatment, and complex care for people with serious needs.
Community-based agencies and companies employ support workers, caregivers and health care professionals to provide these services.
Who pays for home health care services?
Funding may come from ACC, the Ministry of Health or District Health Boards, depending on the health need. Home health services may also be purchased privately. Either your doctor will organise an assessment to determine what government funding is available, or the assessment could occur through an assessment agency contracted by the Ministry of Health Disability Support Services.
