What Is Private Pay Home Care?
Private Pay Home Care Agency in Wheat Ridge & Denver, CO
As one of the leading home care agencies for families in Wheat Ridge, Denver, Golden, and surrounding areas in Colorado, Visiting Angels works with families to create personalized and affordable care plans. Nowadays, home care agencies are taking over as a preferred alternative to residential care options such as assisted living facilities or nursing homes in the Denver area. And it is really no wonder – who would not prefer to remain in the comfort of their own home with the right kind of support?
While most families understand their loved one’s wish to remain in their home, it is also important to get properly informed on how to finance professional care and what financing options are at your disposal. At Visiting Angels Denver, we provide essential, private pay caregiving services - meaning that our clients, in most cases, pay for the provided care privately, from their own funds. Nonetheless, there are certain benefits that may help cover your costs.
What is Private Pay Home Care?
Private pay home care is nonmedical home care that is financed directly through personal funds, savings, or other private means. Unlike services covered by insurance or government programs, private pay in-home care requires direct payment to home care agencies or independent caregivers. Commonly known as 'out-of-pocket' or 'private duty care,' it provides an alternative to institutional senior living, allowing individuals to receive personalized support while maintaining the comfort and familiarity of their own home.

If you opt for senior care services from Visiting Angels Denver, you have two financing options:
- Long-term care insurance – While most medical and health insurance policies do not cover the costs of professional in-home elderly care, a specific type of insurance called long-term care insurance will partially or entirely cover any future care needs, provided that the policy is obtained on time.
- Privately, out of pocket – Those who are not eligible for long-term care insurance can finance their care privately. The most common ways to finance care privately include income, savings or shared expenses.
Keep in mind that the cost of care is determined by the type of required care and the number of scheduled visits.
