Home Health Care Near Me
Home health care is a popular choice for seniors who have chosen aging in place over residential care. Typical services provided by home health care providers include help with activities of daily living like meal preparation, getting dressed, or remembering to take medication. Home care service providers are generally licensed by the state, and are great for helping with home ownership, personal care and other services often found in a nursing care facility or assisted living facility. In home care patients often receive support during the day, but generally do not require 24-hour intervention. Additional services that are commonly performed by home health care services include housekeeping, transportation within town, help with exercise or physical therapy, laundry services, as well as social activities like card games.
In home care is often used as a care supplement for older adults living with their adult children, who have their own daytime responsibilities. In this way it can alleviate the pressure to provide daytime caregiving.
Paying for home health care is generally done with personal or family assets, but can be billable to long care insurance, the VA or with other forms of insurance. Medicare typically doesn't cover all in home care, though Medicare Part A and / or Part B may cover some skilled nursing care services if it is part of a treatment plan coordinated with your doctor.
