A home health care company can be a public or private organization that provides professional nursing services and homemaker-home health aide services, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy or medical social services. An agency shall be available to enroll new patients and be available to all existing patients seven days a week, twenty-four hours per day, in the patient's home or a substantially equivalent environment. If the agency only provides assistance with activities of daily living (i.e. home health aide services) private pay clients, then it does not need to be a Licensed Home Health Care Agency in Connecticut.
