Home care cost for 24 hours in Gastonia,Charlotte, Denver and Lincolnton area
At some point we may need to make decisions for ourselves or our loved ones when living at home alone is no longer possible and more care is needed. While some seniors prefer the social atmosphere that a nursing home facility provides. However, in-home senior care is still the number one form of elder care in the USA. I have found that most seniors want to live in their own homes and prefer to have family along with the help of an in-home health care agency. In a facility there is one aide to ten residents in-home care there is one aide to one client. Studies have found that the elderly and people with disabilities are much happier in their own home. Seniors staying at home surrounded by their own things while having an aid helping with the daily activities of living. Services provided with in-home care: Dusting, laundry, medication reminders, personal hygiene, meal preparation, doctor appointments and much more. Some seniors may need more hands on assistance, such as ambulation issues. Our staff can provide help to and from the bathroom, kitchen, etc.
So the questions are: can we afford the elder care? How much will my long-term insurance pay? Does Medicare help cover the cost?
If you have a long-term policy, you would need to consult your insurance agent.
Unfortunately Medicare does not cover in-home care.
