Most Elders Will Need Living Assistance
The majority of senior citizens will someday need help with their activities of living. According to the United States Department of Health and Human Services, the figure is right around 70 percent. Medicare will pay for convalescent care after an injury or illness if the patient is expected to recover. However, it will not pay for the custodial care that is provided in nursing homes and assisted living communities.
Long-term care facilities are extremely expensive, so in-home elder care can be a viable solution. Though Medicare will not pay for this type of care if it is considered to be custodial, there is a potential financial solution. Medicaid will pay for long-term care in an external facility, and a portion of the program will cover in-home care. Since it is intended for people with limited resources, there are income and asset parameters, but many people can obtain eligibility.
Each person that needs elder care in Washington, D.C. or the other cities that we serve will have a different set of needs. We work closely with our clients to gain an understanding of every respective situation so that we can provide the ideal assistance. Our team includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech and language therapists, home health aides, and certified nursing assistants. Medical social workers are on our staff as well, and these professionals can help you understand how to take advantage of government programs that assist with in-home care costs.
