Home Care

Think Non- Medical Care

Fees- Private Pay- VA Benefits and LTC Insurance may cover costs.

$18 to $25 per hour

 

Home Care Agencies provide various services to enable their clients to stay in their own home. Services may include but are not limited to:

Transportation

Cooking

Bathing

Dressing

Light Housekeeping

Caring For Pets

Shopping or Picking up Medications and Groceries

 

Just about any service a family member can do but does not have time for, a home care agency can provide. Home care can be used once a week for a few hours or 24 hours a day. Some companies offer live-in caregivers.

 

While you may be tempted to save a few bucks hiring a private caregiver, be careful. Talk to an Elder Law attorney before doing this. It could cause problems down the road if you needed to apply for Medicaid.

 

Home Health Care

Think Medical Care

Fees- Medicare or Private Insurance. Some companies also accept private pay.

 

Home Health Care requires a doctor's orders. The service is often used in conjunction with Home Care services. Services may include but are not limited to:

Physical Therapy

Speech Therapy

Occupational Therapy

Wound Care

Patient and Caregiver Education

Intravenous and Nutrition Therapy

Injections

Monitoring illness and unstable health status.

 

The goal of home health care is to treat an illness or injury. Home health care helps you get better, regain your independence, and become as self-sufficient as possible. It is not designed for long term use.

 

Even though Home Health Care is ordered by your doctor, you still have the right to choose your own provider.

Hospice Care

Hospice services are the most misunderstood services available.

Fees- Medicare or Private Insurance

 

Hospice services are offered in your home, assisted living, nursing home or wherever you reside. Hospice companies offer patients a full team-centered approach to your care. Your team will include:

A Medical Director

Nurse

Social Worker

Chaplin

Certified Nursing Assistant

 

In addition, Hospice will pay for all or most of your medication, your incontinent supplies,

and any medical equipment you may need including a wheelchair or hospital bed.

Though a doctor must sign the order saying that he believes you have 6 months or less to live many hospice patients live much longer. This is probably due to all the extra care and attention they receive. It is not unheard of for someone to be on hospice services for a couple of years.
