What is the difference of home care and home health care?

The terms “Home Health Care” and “Home Care” are used interchangeably. This type of care is given in the home under a doctor’s order. It is usually less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective as care given in a hospital or skilled nursing facility. The goal of home health care is to treat an illness or injury, helping an individual to get better, regain independence, and become as self-sufficient as possible.
