When your family is not ready for a full-time move to SeniorCare Homes, getting additional non medical in-home care services can be a great next step. Staying in the home can often be pro-longed when care hours are added to the equation. Many home care companies are licensed and provide CMA, CMT, CNA or HHA caregivers for hands-on support with bathing, dressing, transfers, meal preparation and medication administration. Other options include unlicensed caregivers that are able to assist with more non-medical needs like preparing meals, taking residents out to appointments and social events, doing light house cleaning or general custodial support for companionship. Home care services can be billed through medicare, Veterans Aid and Attendance benefits, Medicaid or paid out of pocket depending on the situation.
Diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinsons, Cardiac, cancer, Multiple Sclerosis all require different skill sets and knowledge from the care team. Finding an agency that offers formal, disease specific training for all caregivers can help make all the difference.
