Everything You Need to Know About Private Pay Senior Home Care Services

Visiting Angels Central Coast helps make private pay senior home care services affordable and accessible for families in Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley, Marina and surrounding areas in California

Across the country, an increasing number of families are opting for senior home care services – a welcome alternative to facilitated care traditionally provided in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. This is because older adults naturally have a strong desire to spend their golden years at home, not in an unfamiliar place with strangers.

While families know their parents’ wishes to continue living at home, most of them don’t understand how to finance professional senior care services.

Visiting Angels Central Coast is a private pay caregiving agency, providing non-medical care for elderly adults in Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley, Marina and surrounding communities in Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties. What this means is that in most cases, clients pay for rendered services privately, with their own funds.

Private Pay Options

At Visiting Angels Central Coast, we accept private pay and long-term care insurance as methods of financing senior home care services for your loved one:

  • Out of pocket  – If your loved one isn’t eligible for benefits, you can finance care directly from family funds. Some families choose to pay from their income or savings while others opt to share expenses between them. For the exact costs of care, it’s best to schedule a free in-home care consultation with Visiting Angels where we can discuss your care plan in detail.
  • Long-term care insurance – Most medical and health insurance policies do not cover the costs of home care, but there is a special type of insurance known as long-term care insurance that covers the costs partially or entirely, depending on eligibility.
