24 Hour Non-Medical Caregiver Support Services for the Elderly

a-1 home care breast cancer early detectionHome Care vs. Home Health Care

Non-medical home care services provide caregiving services for those who need basic assistance with household chores, such as cooking, cleaning, companion care, light housekeeping, medication reminders, and toileting care.

Home health care services are considered clinical whereas home care services are not.  By “clinical,” we mean that skilled nursing care is required as part of support services for the senior.  This may include rehabilitative therapy, IV therapy and injections, catheter care and tracheotomy care.  Home health care does not include assistance with daily living activities.

Financial Assistance for In-Home Care Services

Long-term care insurance does not cover home health care, but it does cover home care if it is covered in the policy.  Oftentimes, when Medicare benefits run out for low-income seniors, they have to resort to other forms of financial means to pay for 24 hour in-home care.  This is where long-term care insurance and veteran benefits come in, and if your employer’s benefits package included elder care as part of the pension plan, that will cover you too for a while.  As seniors are living longer, benefits are running out, and eventually families have to pay out of pocket.

When to Start Hospice Care

When a loved one is suffering from a terminal illness it is tough. How do you decide when to start hospice care? The time to start hospice care is when treatment is no longer working and the main focus shifts to providing comfort for the patient. This is usually when the doctor announces the patient has less than six months. Hospice & Palliative Care Federation of Massachusetts suggests ” By contacting hospice early in the diagnosis  the patient and family reserve time to understand their options and choose the path that will have the most positive impact on quality of life.”Before making the decision to switch to hospice care, discuss this with families and doctors. 

A-1 Home Care in Altadena offers hospice care along with general in home senior and elderly care services. Hospice care is also available in Pasadena, Alhambra, Arcadia, La Crescenta, Sierra Madre, Rosemead, San Marino, or other cities in Los Angeles County or San Gabriel Valley.
