What is Home Care for Seniors?
Our Home Care services provide you with a caregiver who will help with what is called Activities of Daily Living. In layman terms, Activities of Daily living are key life tasks that people need to manage to live safely and comfortably at home. This includes cooking meals, housekeeping, bathing, dressing assistance, transportation to appointments, incontinence care, and transferring from bed to wheelchair.
Our Home Care Services are highly customized to your unique situation and needs. We can design your Personalized Care Plan at no cost.
Home Much Does it Cost for an In-Home Caregiver?
We need to discuss your needs to give you an exact quote because the cost is based on your personalized Care Plan. For example, a Care Plan with a higher level of care will lead to slightly higher prices. We promise we will offer competitive rates compared to other agencies. CareNetLA’s philosophy is Higher Quality Care at a Lower Price. If you are with another agency, we can almost always save you money. Our prices are about 10% lower per hour than other agencies. If you need 24/7 care, we guarantee we can save you money. Our prices are usually 40% lower than other agencies for 24/7 care.
Does Insurance Cover Home caregivers?
It depends on the type of insurance. The most common insurance is long-term care insurance, which is a form of life insurance. Long-term care insurance is designed to cover the costs of home care, assisted living, and nursing homes. If you have a long-term care insurance policy, we have considerable experience working with many different long-term care insurance carriers and we can help you navigate the process of setting up home care and getting reimbursed through your long-term care insurance.
Unfortunately, Medical Insurance such as Medicare does not cover the cost of Home Care because they deem it to be non-medical. We think this is unfortunate because so many people could use a little help from their Medical Insurance. There is hope it may change in the future because some politicians have discussed expanding government coverage for caregiving services. We think it is a critical issue and we will provide updates on our website.
