The vast majority of older adults has a strong desire to remain living in their home as they age, so it is truly no wonder that in-home senior care has become a preferred alternative to assisted living facilities or nursing homes in the last few years.
When families start considering private care options for their aging loved one, they first need to determine how to finance professional care.
At Visiting Angels Jonesboro, we provide private pay services, meaning that in most cases clients pay for our private home care services privately, out-of-pocket. Nonetheless, some seniors in Jonesboro, Ellenwood, Riverdale, Morrow, College Park and surrounding areas in Georgia may be eligible for certain benefits that can partially or entirely cover the costs of professional senior care services.
Visiting Angels Jonesboro is an approved provider of Home Health Aide, HHA for short, and Respite visits included in the Veterans Benefits program. HHA is designed to help aging veterans remain living independently at home by assisting with a plethora of daily needs while Respite visits offer temporary relief for family caregivers.
If your loved one is an honorably discharged veteran or surviving spouse of such a veteran, consider checking eligibility and requirements with your local Veterans Affairs office.

While long-term care coverage is not included in most traditional health and medical insurance plans, there is a specific policy called long-term care insurance that can cover senior’s future care needs if obtained in time. Usually, this type of policy is sought after by adults in their 40s and 50s as a means of financing their future care needs.

For those who don’t have a long-term care insurance policy or are ineligible to receive Veterans Benefits, our services can be financed privately. Some families chose to pay with income or savings while others opt to share expenses between siblings and relatives.
At Visiting Angels Jonesboro, we offer free in-home consultations to provide guidance and help families through the decision-making process. At a convenient time, our expert client directors can visit your loved one’s home to discuss our private home care services, assess your needs and develop a personalized plan of care. During this initial meeting, we will also go through your financing options and the costs of your specific care plan.
