    Home health service companies provide care for elderly and disabled individuals who wish to remain in their own homes. Their services may vary from simple companionship to something close to hospice care. They may be hired on a long term basis or for short periods to give respite to family caregivers. Some may be registered nurses, others are simply aides with some form of medical training. Most assist their clients in dealing with the challenges of aging or physical disability. Some may also work with individuals with mental health challenges. Short term home health care may also be provided during rehabilitation from an injury or recovery from serious disease. Most providers operate as an agency. They provide nurses, home health aides or attendants and sometimes companions. Aides work under the supervision of nurses, attendants with social workers. Agencies may specialize in providing assistance for adult patients, for the elderly or for children. An agency may also focus on short term or long term care. The majority specialize in offering care to seniors and may be associated with senior centers or retirement homes. In some cases, their services are covered by health insurance, but most patients or their families have to pay out of pocket for various expenses. Simple companionship is sometimes provided by volunteers. Home health care providers network with other medical professionals. They are commonly in direct communication with the client's doctor. They may also work with nutritionists and alternative medicine providers. In many cases they advise on the difficult decision to move into supported housing. When working with rehabilitation and recovery, they may help with the transition back to work and a normal life.
