SHC Post-COVID Home Care

"It was initially thought that patients with COVID-19 fell into two groups: those who experience severe symptoms and require hospitalization; and those who have mild flu-like symptoms and recover within a couple of weeks. However, we now know that there is a third important group: people who begin to recover from COVID-19 but continue to experience heart issues, shortness of breath, fatigue, or cognitive difficulties—often for weeks or months."

COVID-19 Recovery is Different for Everyone

SHC realizes COVID-19 affects every patient in various ways, so your treatment needs to be personalized to accommodate your needs. While the long-term effects of the virus are not known yet, we have learned it can affect many different systems within the body, from the lungs to the heart to the kidneys. That is why SHC offers our patients coordinated care from a broad range of home care services based on individual needs. We understand that the road to recovery may be concerning and may require multiple specialists, appointments, and procedures. However, we are here for you, and you are not alone in this journey. We will collaborate with you to create the right home care services suitable for you. 

SHC has caregivers such as PCA, HHA, RN, and LPN. In addition, we provide non-medical and medical field workers who are professionally skilled.

Why should I consider private personal care?

You may want to consider private care for yourself or your loved one for several reasons:

  • Paying out-of-pocket gives you greater flexibility in the type and the number of services you receive. For example, private insurance and Medicare have requirements for home care coverage. Personal care allows you to avoid these restrictions and limits if you do not qualify for benefits or have exhausted them yet still want or need maintenance.

  • Paying for home care may also be a less costly alternative to a nursing home or assisted living facility.
