Post-Acute Care helps to ease the transition between Home Health, Supportive Care, and Hospice. HCM provides these services to help individuals to continue living at home, improve the patient’s optimal level of well-being, and assist the patient at home. These services help to minimize hospitalization or admission to long-term care institutions. HCM stands ready to care for you and your loved ones at home; because home is where we all want to be.

Home Care

Home Care helps individuals to improve function and live with greater independence; to promote the patient’s optimal level of well-being; and to assist the patient to remain at home, avoiding hospitalization or admission to long-term care institutions.

Supportive Care

Supportive Care helps patients with chronic or serious illnesses improve their quality of life. Supportive care does not focus on fixing the underlying condition but instead focuses on providing relief from symptoms and stress related to serious or chronic illness.

Supportive Care is for patients still wanting aggressive treatment for their condition.

Hospice

Hospice care focuses on the care, comfort, and quality of life of a person with a serious illness who is approaching the end of life.

Hospice care is for patients who are no longer wanting aggressive treatment for their conditions.
