Oftentimes, needed care is not planned for until the need is urgent and immediate—and family caregivers are most often the ones developing a long-term care plan. The most surprising and unfortunate realization for many family caregivers is discovering that the care recipient is too rich for most government-funded social programs and not rich enough to pay for full-time, long-term care. So, budgeting for the required care may seem like an uphill battle.
We’re here to share that there are options and resources available to help pay for in-home care, and we can work with you and your family to assist with finding a solution for a particular situation.
Resources to help explore the options of paying for in-home care include:
- PBS’ “Caring for Your Parents” website, that provides details on alternative ways to pay for home care services. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/caringforyourparents/caregiver/homecare/payingfor.html
- The National Association for Home Care and Hospice provides an informative fact sheet which breaks down the different ways to pay for home care services. http://www.nahc.org
We’ll be happy to answer all of your in-home care questions.
