Planning for care
How to know if in-home care is right for you
For many families, it’s not always clear when they should start in-home care, if at all. Most families recognize a need for more support, but aren’t sure if in-home care is really the answer. To help make this decision easier, here are a few things to consider when planning for care.
Determining a need
The level of support seniors need depends on a number of factors and often includes the needs of family members as well. Some seniors need fairly intense medical care, while others just need someone to talk to and help out around the house. All levels of service can help improve health outcomes and be an asset in maintaining independence and quality of life for seniors. At Pinnacle Home Care, we offer a free consultation with members of our care team to help assess your current need and decide what level of service is right for you and your family.
Paying for care
Finances always play a factor when planning for in-home care, and we want to do everything we can to make sure money isn’t a barrier to high-quality in-home care. Check with your insurance provider to see what kinds of services are covered under your plan. If you have questions about Medicare, our team can help you find the answers you need.
Choosing an agency
There are a lot of in-home care providers out there, and it can be difficult to decide who to trust to care for the important people in your life. We recommend doing your homework, learning about not only what services an agency can provide, but also how they provide that care and the values they bring to their work. At Pinnacle Home Care, we pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality in-home care with integrity and respect.
