Do You Need In-Home Care?

Do You Need In-Home Care?

When it comes to long-term care, there is a lot of denial. It starts with the lack of planning for aging, illness or other things that crop up in life and prevent someone from living completely independently. Next, there are the family caregivers who aren’t aware they are caregivers as they just keep “helping out” more and more—many times to the detriment of their own health.

Given these facts, it’s no surprise that people may not know when they could benefit from in-home care for themselves or a loved one. Part of the reason for this is that people may not know what services are included under this umbrella, or how it can be paid for by different types of insurance or benefits.

We’ve created this nifty infographic quiz for you to become more familiar with the services and see how you rate. Feel free to print it out and share it with someone you care about.
