The Garden State is one of America's most industrial and well populated states. From its northern "gateway" area whose economy is tied in with New York City to southern seaside suburbs, New Jersey has a diverse economy, people and landscape. Although much of its substantial population doesn't live in large cities, New Jersey remains an important state for business.
In New Jersey, home Health Agencies provide medical care to patients in their homes. Services typically include nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. In many states, home hospice care falls under home health licensing. Like medical facilities, states heavily regulate home health agencies and require licenses. In some cases, county and city licenses also apply, particularly to the disposal of medical waste.
