Home Care for Older Adults (65+)

Medicare provides coverage for elderly patients who are 65yrs and above, who are struggling with management of chronic diseases and will benefit from supportive education of disease process. Disease education along with medication teaching can prevent a lot of complications that accompanied chronic disease like Hypertension, Diabetes, Arthritis, COPD, CHF, Falls etc).
