Home health care is classified as intermittent health care. A home health certification lasts for 60 days. Each one of Anchor’s patients has unique health concerns, and their plan of care is created accordingly. While some of our patients may stay in our care for the full 60 days, others may be discharged earlier. Please know that after 60 days, if the patient still requires home care, the patient can be recertified for an additional 60 days with a doctor’s order.
