How Much Does Home Care Cost?
Get Companion Care and Homemaking Services for Your Loved One
The cost of short and long-term care is an important consideration for families and their loved ones. 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 best way to find out how much you can expect to pay for using a professionally-trained compassionate caregiver for yourself or a loved one is to contact Homewatch CareGivers of West Hartford, Connecticut.
