Private Pay Home Care Options from Visiting Angels Havertown
Havertown, Wayne, Bryn Mawr, Wynnewood, Broomall and the neighboring cities in Montgomery, Philadelphia and Delaware Counties have all seen an increase in the need for in-home elder care services. It lets seniors maintain their everyday routine and spend their golden years in familiar surroundings. If your loved one is suffering from age-related challenges, it may be preferable to hire a professional home care provider rather than relocate to a nursing home.
Professional home care organizations like Visiting Angels Havertown make it possible for seniors to get the care they need while staying in the familiar surroundings of their own homes, rather than having to move to less desired alternatives like nursing homes or assisted living facilities. There is no longer a need for elderly people to uproot and move to an institution specifically designed to care for them; instead, they can have caregivers come directly to their homes. However, this has left some families in Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties wondering how they would be able to pay for home care services.
Thankfully, Visiting Angels Havertown assists families in developing customized care plans that are both comprehensive and cost-effective. Because of the nature of our business, families must pay for services out of pocket. But we're dedicated to assisting you in locating resources that may help make in-home care for your senior loved one more affordable.
Why Choose a Professional Home Care Agency Over an Independent Caregiver?
Havertown, Wayne, Bryn Mawr, Wynnewood, Broomall and the neighboring communities are home to a large number of independent caregivers you can hire for your elderly loved one. If you need assistance managing your loved one's care, however, a professional home care agency like Visiting Angels Havertown may be a better solution.
All of our caregivers go through an extensive screening process to ensure they have the necessary experience and mindset. Furthermore, we handle the administration of payroll, benefits and scheduling. That way, you won't have to waste your own time supervising the caregiver your loved one receives or worrying about whether or not they are qualified to perform the job.
Caregiver flexibility is another advantage of hiring a professional home care provider like Visiting Angels Havertown. As a result, your loved one will always be able to get the help they need just when they need it, since we tailor our care plans to each individual client. You'll also be given the freedom to choose the caregiver you feel would be the best match for you and your needs.
What Payment Options Does Visiting Angels Havertown Accept?
As a private pay home care agency, Visiting Angels Havertown cannot accept most insurance plans or Medicare as a method of payment. You should check into whether or not your loved one is qualified for any benefits that could pay the cost of senior home care services.
Long-Term Care Insurance
You may already know that most health insurance plans for seniors do not cover personal care at home. Getting insurance that will pay for your loved one's long-term care needs might be challenging. Ask your insurance provider about long-term care insurance policies to see whether they cover in-home care for the elderly. The cost of this coverage, which may include many types of care for the elderly, varies widely from insurer to insurer.
You should find out whether your loved one has this insurance; middle-aged people who do not yet need home care are the most likely to set up this sort of coverage. Find out whether and how much is covered by this policy by contacting their Power of Attorney or insurance agent.
Paying Out of Pocket
Families may pay for home care out of pocket if their loved one does not have a long-term care insurance policy. With Visiting Angels Havertown, families with no other choice than to pay out of pocket still have options. Our company offers a no-cost in-home consultation to anybody who is interested in our services. At the consultation, we'll go through our home care services, as well as your loved one's needs and how much our services cost. You and your loved one may now decide on the next steps and a suitable payment method. We then tailor a care plan to your loved one's needs and build a schedule of care for the days your loved one needs a caregiver.
