What is Home Care?
As the name implies, it is the ability to provide services in the patient's home. Many of our clients benefit by alleviating the need for extended stays in a hospital or nursing home. People are often amazed at the number of services that can be performed in the home. We can send personal care providers, homemakers and companions in the home. We also have respite care to allow caregivers a well deserved break.
Isn't Home Care just for seniors?
There is no age range for clients, senior citizens are the greater portion or our patients, but many people who need assistance get home care for themselves, parents and grandparents. It all depends on your needs.
How is cost determined and who pays?
Cost is based on the type and frequency of services needed. Our Staff will assist in planning what care is appropriate for you. Care may be covered by your insurance, Medicaid or private pay. Most long term care insurance plans cover the cost of home care. However, each plan may have certain conditions or criteria that must be met in order to qualify.
