Benefits of home care through Beth Israel Lahey Health

Exceptional Health Care in Your Own Home

Beth Israel Lahey Health At Home provides you or your loved one with support and resources following a hospital stay, illness or injury or to assist with end-of-life needs. Our goal is to provide you exceptional care in your home, or as close to home as possible.

Fully Customized, In-Home Health Care Plan

We work with your medical provider and your hospital or skilled nursing facility to develop a care plan based on your personal goals. The plan will help improve your health and quality of life while maintaining your independence and dignity. When your doctor refers you to our care, we’ll provide them with ongoing updates on your care plan, as well as a discharge summary when you complete home care services. Your doctor also can utilize the secure Epic health care portal to monitor your care and communicate with Beth Israel Lahey Health At Home providers.

Benefits of Home Health Care

Because we are part of Beth Israel Lahey Health, we’re able to help coordinate any health and medical services you may need — without fear of getting lost in the health care system.

Another benefit to choosing us for your home health care is that we offer home care, hospice care and palliative care all under the same umbrella. Again, you won’t need to piece together different care needs; our compassionate team will handle those details on your behalf.

Some of the benefits of home care services are to:

  • Avoid rehospitalization.
  • Continue to have your independence.
  • Enjoy the comfort and privacy of being at home.
  • Reduce risk of infection.
How Home Care Works

Because we provide our services based on medical necessity, you need to have a doctor’s order or referral to ensure you qualify. Once the referral is in place, we work to get your home health services in place as quickly as possible, based on a clinical triage system.

For those with critical needs, we may be able to initiate home health services as soon as 24 hours. However, our team will keep you and your family informed about the expected timeline after your doctor submits your referral to us.
