FAQ’s About Home Care Service

Many of the questions we receive about our non-medical homecare services including eligibility, medicaid, timing and more.

Non-medical in-home care services focuses on helping seniors and people with disabilities with what are known as “activities of daily living” so that they can remain living safely at home in the community.  Types of non-medical home care services include: bathing, grooming, transferring, toileting, meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication reminders and escorting to doctors’ appointments and errands.

There are a variety of ways to pay for non-medical home care, including through a state’s Medicaid Waiver Program, County OPTIONS Programs, long-term care insurance and private pay.  The VA also pays for non-medical home care services for certain qualifying veterans and/or their surviving spouse.

These are state programs designed to provide services to people who would otherwise be required to enter an institution, nursing home or hospital to receive long-term care services.  Medicaid Waivers allow these individuals to receive needed non-medical home care services at home without having to enter an institution.  These services are provided at NO cost to qualified recipients.

We can start services immediately for clients being referred through a Medicaid Waiver program and normally within 24 hours for insurance and private pay clients.
