Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Home Care and Home Health Care?
Home Care includes paraprofessional level skills to provide personal care for non-medical activities and needs—bathing, assisting with self-administration of medications, and assistance in preparing and taking meals, for instance. Home Health Care includes activities that require a medical/physician’s orders, such as registered nursing, physical therapy, and occupational therapy.
Are any of your services covered by insurance?
Most of our services are either private pay or Medicaid (not covered by Medicare). Some may be covered by long-term care insurance.
What are the signs that someone may need Home Care or Companion Care?
As people age, their energy and strength diminish. Taking care of the home, errands and their personal health can suffer. And even with support from a family caregiver, they may be on their own for long stretches of time and experience loneliness—which can have a severe effect on mental and emotional wellbeing.
Can you help with Transportation?
Yes, we can help with transportation—to doctor’s appointments, for shopping or other errands. We can arrange for regular rides, or appointment-specific needs.
