Home Health Aide, Home Health Care, and Medicaid Waiver for Baltimore, Maryland
Do you need assistance with daily household tasks but are worried about how to pay for it? When your resources have been exhausted, a Medicaid waiver may be the solution for you or your loved one. This is a government resource that you have paid into and should take advantage of if you qualify. Part of the Medicaid waiver can pay for in-home care based on the Home and Community-based Services Waiver Program. You will need to prove your financial need, but the asset/income limits are more flexible under the program than other home health care options.
Receiving home health care through a home health aide is a great alternative to a residential facility. You will be able to age in place in the comfort of your own home surrounded by the memories and neighbors you love. The government realizes that living at home has its health benefits as well as more financially attractive than a facility. There is no obligation to look into qualifying for the program.
Home health aides provide the services that keep you or your loved one healthy and happy at their Baltimore home. The services provided by a home health aide can vary from dressing and hygiene to cleaning and laundry. Professional Healthcare Resources will help connect you with the home health aide to best accommodate your needs.
