About Care at Home
More and more, people prefer to be cared for in the comfort and dignity of their own homes. Home health, hospice and home care provide in-home medical services that are cost-effective and person-centered.
Home health provides skilled services, including nursing care and physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapy. An agency will send a licensed professional to assess home health needs and develop a care plan.

Advance Health Care Directives
Secretary of State's Advance Health Care Directives Registry
The NC General Assembly authorized the North Carolina Department of the Secretary of State to establish a registry where you may file your advance health care directives. Advance health care directives are legal documents that give written instructions about your health care if, in the future, you cannot speak for yourself.
