Questions and Answers About In-Home Senior Care

By Marius Butas, 8:00 am on

As your parents age, you may find yourself facing some difficult situations. Daily tasks like doing laundry and cooking aren’t as easy for your loved one as they used to be, and running errands or getting to appointments is almost impossible. The idea of moving them out of their home and into a facility makes you heartsick. Luckily, you may find that home care in Mesa is a feasible option for your family, but with such a big decision, we’re sure that you have plenty of questions.

The professional and experienced staff at Home Care Assistance of Mesa have taken the liberty to not only address the most frequently asked questions, but to provide the answers as well.

Is in-home care covered by Medicare, Medicaid or insurance plans?

Most of the time, Medicare and insurance plans do not cover non-medical home care. However, there are situations where Medicaid will cover senior care expenses. Additionally, long-term care insurance policies will be able to assist with the financial burden. No matter the case, rest assured knowing that the Care Managers at Home Care Assistance will be able to help you figure out how to finance in-home senior care.

What should I look for when hiring a home care agency?

When looking at home care agencies, look for companies that provide 24/7 caregivers in Mesa that are insured and bonded. This will protect your loved one and the workers who are in their home. Ask for references from the home care agency and be sure to read their online testimonials.

How will my loved one react to having a stranger in their home?

There’s no denying that this is a major adjustment for an older person. However, with Home Care Assistance, we carefully match no more than two caregivers to specifically suit your aging loved one’s personality, preferences and care needs in order to help facilitate a genuine long-term bond.
