TITLE: Michael Brevda Talks About His Concerns with the Home Health Care Industry
David Terry, Michael Brevda
In this episode, host and lawyer David Terry, invited Florida attorney Michael Brevda to discuss the pros and cons of utilizing in-home care as opposed to an Assisted Living Facility or Nursing home.
They talked about the following points:
Exactly what is Home Health Care and what is the difference between Home Health, In-Home Care, and Private Duty?
Who are the individuals going into people’s homes to provide care for them? Are they random individuals, or are they employed by a company? What kind of training do they get? What kind of insight do they receive about the needs of the individual for whom they are going to be providing services for?
Do they or their employers have to have a license for this?
Are home health care agencies required by law to carry insurance? (Amazingly most states do not require nursing homes to carry liability insurance!)
How do home health companies market themselves to potential customers and do they live up to the promises they make?
How much of an assessment of the home and individual being cared for do home health agencies do (or do they even do an assessment)?
