Frequently Asked Questions
Boost Home Healthcare – General FAQ
What is home healthcare?
After an illness, injury or health setback, patients might need an additional boost to get back to better. Rather than receiving that care in a hospital or medical facility, home healthcare brings the same quality of care directly to you. Our skilled team members provide one-on-one, personalized care without distractions. On top of being more private, home healthcare may also be a more affordable option.
What does nurse-inspired care mean?
To create our premier model, we took the very best traits nurses identified in standard hospital settings and brought them to your home. This creates a more compassionate, comprehensive, communicative recovery process for our patients.

How frequent will my home healthcare visits be?
This will depend on the care you need and the treatment plan determined by your medical team. Visits can be as frequent or spaced out as necessary.
How is your team trained?
All Boost Home Healthcare team members have the training, certifications and accreditations necessary for their roles. They are highly vetted and qualified to provide hospital-level care at your place of residence.
What can I expect on a home healthcare visit?
During your first visit, your nurse will explain all the details of your plan of care, including which other Boost professionals, including physical therapists, social workers, registered dietitians, and home health aides, are part of your home care team and how often you’ll see them.
Is hospitalization required to receive home healthcare?
No, hospitalization is not a requirement to receive home healthcare. Many patients are referred by their doctor.
What qualifies as a “home” for home healthcare?
Your residence is wherever you call home. This may be your house, an apartment, a relative’s home, a senior community or another type of residence. Hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and intermediate care facilities are not considered “homes.” This means we cannot provide home health services in those settings.
