          We all love our independence. But as we get older, there are certain things that we may not be able to do on our own, including our own in-home healthcare.

At a noon presentation on Wednesday, February 27, Coffey County Hospital Home Health Agency Supervisor Shelly Moss will discuss qualifications for home health, the difference between home health and other types of assistance, and the variety of services available.

Home health care allows people living with a variety of diagnoses and situations to continue to stay safe and independent at home as they manage their condition. It developed in response to the needs of families to care for loved ones at home and the prohibitive costs associated with institutional care.

          “Access to home health services is important for people with chronic conditions or disabilities, and for those who need short-term medical help after being discharged from the hospital,” said Moss. “Home health benefits Coffey County, because it gives the geriatric population a chance to retain a degree of their independence, and possibly delay hospitalization or a move to an assisted living facility.”

           “Please note that this event is on Wednesday, February 27, instead of our traditional Friday schedule,” said Director of Marketing Tracy Campbell. “We look forward to welcoming the community for this special noon presentation.
