When talking with clients and their families, I have found that Medicare is misunderstood, especially when it comes to home care. Many seniors believe that once they are 65 all their health care needs will be covered. Sadly, they quickly find out that the coverage has limitations.
So, I thought I would help to dispel this myth in the next several entries to our blog. Starting with, what is not covered by Medicare, then, who is eligible for Medicare, and lastly what is covered by Medicare as it relates to home health care.
Where does our company fit in, and how and when do you need our services?
Preferred Care at Home is here when you need us:
• When you don’t qualify for Medicare, but are in need of homemaker services like shopping, cleaning, and laundry or personal care services like bathing, dressing, and using the bathroom.
• When you no longer are covered by Medicare but need ongoing services in order to maintain your quality of life with independence and dignity in the comforts of your home.
• When you are receiving Medicare, but it isn’t enough or additional services you are wanting are not related to your plan of care. We then come along side one’s Medicare benefit to give you that needed additional care to allow you to maintain your independence and dignity in your home.
