Frequently Asked Questions

The difference between home health and non-medical home care assistance is the necessity for skilled services. Home health care requires skilled services that would come from a physician’s order. This includes things like registered nurses, physical therapy and occupational therapy.

Non-medical home care assistance involves services that are typically paid for through private pay (not paid by insurance). These services include help around the house, transportation, bathing and some light meal preparation.

Non-Medical Home Care is typically not covered by Medicare or other health insurance. Long-Term Care Insurance MAY pay for non-medical home care, depending on the benefits listed in the policy.

Yes, we do provide non-medical in-home care assistance. These services include help:

  • Dressing
  • Bathing
  • Light meal preparation
  • Cleaning
  • Medication reminders
  • Assistance with some of their daily living activities

Many people remain very independent as they age, even through injury and illness. But if you think someone could benefit from personal home care or senior care services, here are some things to look for:

  • Is the house tidy?
  • Are there adequate groceries (not just frozen dinners)?
  • Have you noticed any weight loss?
  • Has personal hygiene declined?
  • Does the person seem lonely or withdrawn?
  • Are there any concerns with memory?
Transportation, especially to medical appointments and procedures, is a popular home care service. It can often be arranged in a few hours, but the more notice given is always better. A regular planned schedule can be set up, or the caregiver can be used on an “as needed” basis.

Yes, we do. We first arrange a meeting with the family to conduct a thorough assessment and develop a plan of care. This is not only to fully understand what activities or senior care services are needed, but also to get a sense of what kind of personality might best suit him or her. After this is completed, we will match the person with a caregiver. If at any time you would like to change your caregiver, this can easily be arranged.

If a caregiver is sick or has another challenge that prevents them from arriving at your home, we will send our back-up, on-call caregiver to replace them.
