BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – We understand that there’s no place like home.

That’s why we offer a wide range of professional health services in the comfortable, familiar environment of your home — where family and friend can provide support and encouragement. Health First Home Care can help make the transition from hospital to home a smooth one.

In some instances, home care can be a cost-effective alternative to hospitalization or a rehabilitation facility.

Advancements in medicine make it possible for state-of-the-art treatments to be administered safely and efficiently in the home. Health care at home allows people to receive medical treatments in comfortable surroundings while not giving up their independence and dignity.

Who Receives Home Care Services?

Anyone who has a medical condition requiring care that can not be provided solely by family members or friends could benefit from home care services.

Care can consist of short-term assistance as the result of outpatient surgery, maternity-related incapacity, or illness or injury that affect the individual’s ability to leave the home for treatment.

The services of Health First Home Care are available to anyone. Individuals may ask their physicians for a referral to a home care agency. Medical treatments available in the home must be prescribed by a physician.

Home health care services can be paid for directly by the patient or indirectly by public, third-party payors such as Medicare and Medicaid. Private insurance coverage will vary according to plan provisions. Health First Home Care will screen your insurance plan and confirm your level of coverage prior to providing health care services.
