Why use Home Care?

Home care allows a person to live as independently as possible without having to give up the comforts of their own home.  It brings peace of mind to know they can sleep in their own bed at night, and stay close to loved ones. It allows access to skilled, consistent, reliable care when it’s needed.

 

Can you only get home care in a private residence?

No. Home care services can be provided wherever the home is- a private residence, a senior living community, or while staying with a friend or family caregiver.

 

Who comes to provide the care?

Different types of care require different certifications and training.  Depending on your specific needs, the caregivers coming into your home can vary. Personal care and companionship services are most often provided by an In-Home Aide (IHA) or certified nursing assistant (CNA).

 

How do people pay for home care?

Varies from situation to situation.  There are many different ways people pay for their home care costs.  Some services may be covered by a type of insurance if you have Medicaid. Some may be covered by worker’s compensation or veterans benefits.  Also, services can be paid for directly by the person receiving care, which is commonly referred to as private pay.
