Paying for in-home care for a senior loved one can use up a significant part of your income. At Eveready Home Care, we aim to make home care services more accessible to seniors and their family members.
If you are struggling to pay for your senior’s elderly care in Virginia, here are a variety of payment resources you can choose from.
- Government help
There are different government programs available that can help you pay for your senior’s home health care in Dumfries, Virginia. To find out what programs are available in your area, you can ask assistance from your local Area Agency on Aging.
Here are some of the government benefits that can help you make ends meet…
- Veterans program
- Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE)
- State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP)
- Social Security Disability Income (SSDI)
- Out-of-pocket expenses
Other than government programs, you can also pay using multiple sources, such as your senior’s pension or other retirement funds, income from stocks and bonds, personal savings, or proceeds from the sale of a home.
- Long-term care insurance
In addition to government programs and paying out of pocket, you can also use long-term care insurance. The health coverage depends on the type of policy you buy. Your senior can purchase home care only coverage or a more comprehensive policy that includes pediatric healthcare.
