Understanding Long-Term Care Options in Frankenmuth, MI and Surrounding Areas

Visiting Angels helps families understand their options for financing long-term care for seniors in Frankenmuth, Saginaw, Bay City and the surrounding areas of Michigan

Most aging adults have a strong desire to spend their remaining years in the one place they feel most comfortable – their home. However, when debilitating health or chronic conditions make independent life at home more challenging, family members often have to make important decisions regarding their parents’ well-being.

If your mom or dad is adamant about aging in place with your support, you may be wondering how your family can afford professional long-term home care services. With Visiting Angels Frankenmuth as your partner in senior care, you won’t have to decide between affordable care or quality care. Our home care services are both.

What Is Long-Term Care Insurance?

A special type of policy called long-term care insurance can be used to minimize or fully cover future costs of care for your senior loved one. It can be used to pay for long-term senior care at home for those with acute or chronic illnesses or permanent disabilities as well as those with limited life expectancy. Usually, people will take out long-term care insurance in their 50s or 60s, but if your parent is slightly older, it is still not too late to look into this option.

You will need to speak directly to your loved one, their Power of Attorney, or their insurance provider to determine if they currently hold this type of policy.

 

Veterans Benefits

The Aid & Attendance program can help senior veterans pay for Visiting Angels services. As a VA preferred provider, we can help your family through the process of applying for benefits and connect you with the proper offices.

Care Plans Customized to Your Needs

If your loved one requires assistance with a range of daily tasks, they can greatly benefit from a personalized long-term care plan. Most often, families come to us not knowing where to start. Here are a few questions to ask yourself when considering in-home care:

  • Does my loved one struggle with mobility or balance?
  • Have they experienced a fall or other accident in their home recently?
  • Am I concerned that my loved one isn’t eating regularly or taking medications properly?
  • Do I feel worried when my loved one is left alone while I’m at work?
  • Does my loved one seem isolated, lonely or depressed?
  • Do I feel worn out or stressed caring for a loved one while managing my other responsibilities?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, it may be time to consider home care from Visiting Angels Frankenmuth.

We’ll start by scheduling a free in-home consultation. We’ll meet you and your loved one in their residence, assess their needs, and develop a custom care plan. Together, we’ll determine a schedule of care and find a qualified caregiver to help.
