We understand that transitioning to home care can be a stressful and difficult time for all involved. Finances and how you will afford to pay for home care and in-home services should be one of the last things you have to worry about during this uncertain time. We provide resources to help you first identify what level of companion care is required depending on your needs. When first transitioning to home care, daily assistance may not be necessary, or it may be as little as a few hours a day. This may not be a huge financial burden on the family. However, as the need for elderly care increases and long term care may be required 24/7 or nursing interventions, it could cause a huge need for financial assistance. This is especially true if family members take off more time from work to help with home care service or medical needs.
One of the first steps you should take as you seek assistance in determining if you qualify for a medical assistance program through the state or government, such as Medicare. We can provide additional information to assist you in deciding further eligibility for additional programs and assistance. For example, some programs’ eligibility is based solely upon financial status, while others are based upon medical necessity. We can help you discover which health care programs will benefit you if you have a chronic condition like COPD or dementia, or need to take daily life-altering medications for diabetes. Whatever your situation, we are here to help you figure out how to pay for the medical care you deserve.
