Who comes into my home to provide care?2020-04-29T14:28:57+00:00

This will depend on whether or not your services are considered skilled or non-skilled care. Skilled care is prescribed by a physician and is provided by one of our licensed and experienced registered nurses or licensed practical nurses, depending on the level of care that you require. Non-skilled care is provided to you by one of our experienced certified nursing assistants or homemakers. 

How do people pay for in-home assisted living services?2020-04-29T14:28:23+00:00

This varies from case to case. There are several different ways to pay for in-home assisted living services. Some services may be covered by a type of insurance that you have such as a long-term care policy, Veterans benefit, or workers compensation. Services can also be paid for through “private pay” which means that the person receiving the services pays for them directly.

Do you provide care for children?2020-04-29T14:27:08+00:00

One of the things that we pride ourselves on is our longstanding commitment to the care of medically frail children through the state’s Medicaid GAPP waiver program. If you qualify or think you may qualify for care through this program, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. In addition, other in-home care services are offered through Medicaid programs known as EDWP and Now/Comp.

Why would someone use in-home assisted living services?2020-04-30T14:44:52+00:00

In-home assisted living services enable a person to live as independently as possible without having to give up the comforts of their own home. Our services allow our clients to remain in a familiar environment, sleep in their own bed at night, and stay close to loved ones like family, friends, and pets. It brings peace of mind to know they can receive consistent, skilled, and reliable care in their own home.

Can in-home assisted living services only be utilized in a private residence?2020-04-29T14:26:10+00:00

No.  In-home assisted living services can be provided wherever you call home! This includes a private residence, senior living community, or at the home of a friend or family caregiver.

How long will my in-home assisted services last?2020-04-29T14:25:16+00:00

This will vary on a case by case basis. Some cases receive short term assistance while other cases last months or years. If a physician is prescribing your in-home care, they will work in conjunction with our Nurse Administrator and our Client Care Coordinator to determine how long your services will last, usually depending on recovery goals. If you are making the decision to start in-home assisted living services on your own, you can determine what services you receive and how often you receive care on a weekly basis.
