How Much Does Home Care Cost?
The cost of short and long-term care is an important consideration for people needing care in Springfield, Massachusetts. Not only does each option—in-home care, assisted living, nursing home, and adult day service—come with its own features and benefits, there are different ways in which you can pay for each too.
Typically, in-home care is paid for out-of-pocket, but many people are also able to use long-term care insurance benefits, veterans’ benefits, or sometimes life insurance plans. In some cases, people can use Medicaid to pay for this service and Medicare Advantage is slowly rolling out new plans that will cover professional caregiving in the home.
The length and scope of care needed will affect the cost of care. Also, costs can vary from state to state and individual needs will also be factored into the hourly fee. Rest assured that a representative from our office can help put together customized pricing options based on your own situation.
