What is home care?

Home care is simply defined as "supportive care in the home".  Health Network of Wisconsin wants to help people stay in their home for as long as possible if that's where they want to be.  When this isn't possible, we will provide support in comfort and safety, wherever home may be.  Assistance may include many things, such as personal care like bathing and dressing, transportation to and from the doctor, grocery store, church, medication reminders, etc or even just companionship.
