Long Term Care

What is Long Term Care? | Paying for Long Term Care

Long term care solutions can be found through community based services, home health care, assisted living facilities, Continued Care Retirement Communities (CCRC), adult group homes and nursing homes. Medicare does not pay for long term care options. In addition, Medicare does not cover custodial care that helps individuals with assistance to daily activities like bathing, dressing or using the restroom. Assistance with daily living can be provided by non-medical home care providers such as homemaker/companion services, nurse registries and home health care agencies at an hourly rate. Home Health Care Agencies generally provided short term intermittent care and is not a long term care solution. Physicians prescribe home health to prevent hospitalization and to monitor a patient for a short period. Most health care organizations require a minimum of four hours per visit. Custodial care can often be found in a nursing home when it is no longer safe for a resident to live in a home environment or funds are limited to hire a personal care professionals.

Coordinating Care Solutions does not have to be difficult if you understand available options.
