As we discussed in a previous blog post, moving from home to an assisted living facility is not always necessary, thanks to professional home health care services. If you’ve started searching for the ideal solution for a senior you love, you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed and have a number of questions: Is home health care an option for Dad? Will Medicare cover the cost? Are there other ways to pay for care?
At Harmony Home Health & Hospice, we answer questions such as these all the time, and we’ve put together the following list of answers to our most frequently asked questions to assist you in your search for exceptional home health and hospice care in Salt Lake City and the surrounding areas.
- Does my aging parent qualify for home health care or hospice services? Home health care services provided by Harmony Home Health & Hospice are available to anyone at any time. We offer a free in-home assessment to meet the senior in need of care and to develop a personalized care plan to outline how we can help.
- Does Medicare cover home health care costs? Medicare provides health insurance coverage through the U.S. government for seniors over age 65, covering skilled nursing care services when certain conditions are met. It does not usually cover help with daily living activities like showering, dressing and grooming. If you’re unsure whether Medicare will cover the services you need, give us a call at 1-877-I-NEED-CARE (1-877-463-3322).
- What options are available to pay for care at home? If Medicare is not an option for covering the cost for the care services needed, there are a variety of other options, such as retirement savings, pensions, life insurance policies and long-term care insurance. Our home health care experts are here to help you understand your options to ensure you have access to the high quality care your loved one needs and deserves.
