Long-Term Care Options for Seniors in Midlothian, VA and Surrounding Areas

If you’re looking into hiring a professional home care agency in Midlothian, Richmond or surrounding communities in Virginia like Visiting Angels, determine if your loved one’s long-term care insurance policy can help cover the cost

It is becoming more common for seniors to want to continue living at home as they age. For many seniors, home is a familiar place where they can find peace and comfort. For older adults who are dealing with new challenges – illness, mobility problems, injury or the loss of a loved one – the reassurance of home can make a big difference.

The cost of in-home senior care can be difficult for some families. However, your family should not feel as though you need to choose between quality and affordable home care.

What is Long-Term Care Insurance?

Most people associate this type of insurance with care provided in nursing homes. However, it covers so much more than the care provided in nursing homes or assisted living facilities.

Long-term care insurance also covers professional in-home caregivers for individuals with acute illnesses, long-term health conditions, permanent disability or terminal illnesses.

Using Long-Term Care Insurance for Home Care Services

At Visiting Angels Richmond VA, our home care services can be funded through private pay, such as personal income or savings, and long-term care insurance. Long-Term Care is a specific type of insurance policy that is often taken out by middle-aged adults in preparation of future care needs.

For the most part, adults start looking into this type of insurance plan in their 50s or 60s. However, your loved one can sign up for it even if they are a bit older. Depending on the insurance provider your loved one decides to sign up with, they may need to wait for a certain period before they can start using their insurance.
