While paying for in-home care can seem expensive, the truth is that its costs pale in comparison to other options such as an assisted living facility or nursing home care. In-home care also provides tremendous advantages, such as maintaining a sense of independence in the home you have come to know and love.
Although most customers pay for services themselves (which we call “self-pay”), there are other options available to help reduce out-of-pocket costs. Let’s explore some of these options.
Home Helpers® Home Care has partnered with Veterans Care Coordination and Patriot Angels to help veterans – and/or a surviving spouse – access the Aid and Attendance Pension benefits they’ve earned. Please note that this is a veterans pension benefit and is not dependent upon service-related injuries for compensation.
Our partners at Promisor Residential will purchase your qualified home at a fair price through their Quick Buy Leaseback Program™. You receive the equity and stay in the home you love while Promisor takes on the burdens of ownership, such as maintaining the property, performing major repairs, pay property taxes, insurance and other costs of ownership.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) updated its rules to allow for payment of some in-home care. Because this is a new benefit with evolving qualifications and territories, contact your local Home Helpers office to see if you’re eligible to take part in these Medicare Advantage benefits.
Did you have long-term care insurance or a benefit through your employer? Contact your local Home Helpers office. They will be able to check with some of our national partners to see if you have insurance coverage or other options available to help pay for in-home care.
