Personal home care and skilled home health services

Whether you need help with personal home care, like bathing and dressing, or home health support like physical therapy or skilled care, learn about options that may make it easier for you to live independently.

Home care services for help with activities of daily living

There are certain times in life—like after an injury or illness—when we could use an extra hand with things like bathing, grooming, preparing meals or other activities of daily living. With Humana’s Personal Home Care Services (PHCS) benefit, you may qualify for care that makes things easier for you. It may even provide a break for family or friends who’ve been supporting you since your injury or illness began.

Here are a few examples of what a home health aide or professional caregiver may help with:

  • Self-care—Help with bathing, getting dressed, using the restroom and other personal needs
  • Getting around—An extra hand getting in or out of bed or a chair, opening doors and helping with walkers or canes
  • Meal preparation—Help preparing your meals using the food you have in your home
