1. WHY SENIOR HOME CARE?

Our program acknowledges your loved one’s need for independence while preserving their dignity and self respect.

TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE…

Making the decision for in home care can be a difficult choice for many families. However, a recent study conducted by the AARP found that 89 percent of seniors want to age in their own homes.

That’s where senior home care can make all the difference for you. In home care allows for the maximum amount of freedom for your loved one and offers a reassuring, personalized setting for optimal health and well-being. When you consider the cost of senior home care is much lower than traditional institutionalized senior care and your loved one will feel more comfortable and confident at home, senior home care becomes even more appealing.

Have you started to worry about the safety of your loved one? Are they at risk of falling? Have you noticing a change in personality, increased social isolation, or decreased mobility? Whether it is due to hectic schedules that impact your daily lives or the distance that keeps your family apart, an unfortunate reality is that we are not always able to provide the consistent care your loved one requires. As a result, many seniors are forced to leave a comfortable home; rich in positive memories in order to move into an expensive and often unfriendly institutional setting.

Your family shouldn’t have to face those challenging situations. New Horizons Healthcare offers a far more suitable and comfortable in home personalized care service so you can get back to focusing on your relationship with your loved one.

Our program acknowledges your loved one’s need for independence while preserving their dignity and self respect. Our skilled caregivers and Care Managers will offer guidance and support every step of the way to navigate the transition to in home care services with comfort and ease.

3. How do I pay for Senior Home Care?

Please give us a call at (312) 288-6345 and one of our friendly staff members will help you explore your payment options based on your unique situation.

TAILORED TO YOUR NEEDS AND BUDGET

Paying for senior home care does not have to set you back financially. In fact, you will find our costs to be very affordable when compared to other similar services or relocating your loved one to an institutional based setting.

Senior home care can offer a wide range of services and payment options depending on whether you need a few hours a week or something more specialized and time intensive. Regardless of your personal circumstances, you may be surprised there are a number of affordable options that may work for you.

Let’s explore some of the more popular and cost effective payment methods.

Private Pay

The costs for services with out of pocket payments can vary widely depending on the types of services and investment of time, ranging from a few hours a week to 24 hour in home senior care. When comparing in home services, it is important to also look at alternative forms of care so you can see relative costs. Families who have set aside funds for a few years of residential care typically find it is more affordable to pay for it out of pocket in an effort to save money while still providing high quality, personalized services for their loved one.

Long Term Care Insurance

Many long term care insurance policies help to cover costs associated with senior in home care services. This can be a big relief for families who already own this type of insurance. For families still considering whether it is a good investment, it is not too late. However, keep in mind that coverage can be expensive and increases with the age of the qualifying family member.

Typically, long term care insurance provides a specified amount per day for caregiving services. The amount provided will depend on the type of insurance and premiums you pay. Be prepared to ask questions and investigate the waiting periods needed, the daily stipend offered and exact eligibility for specific benefits, as these can change from one long term care insurance policy to another.

Veterans Aid and Attendance Pension

Did you know that 1 in 3 seniors is a veteran or spouse of a veteran and may qualify for up to 20 hours a week of free home care services through the Veterans Aid and Attendance Pension?

To receive this benefit, a veteran must have served on active duty, at least 90 days, during a period of war and have an honorable discharge. This pertains to World War II, Korean conflict, Vietnam era and the Gulf War. Qualifying family members receive all of the regular benefits of in home care completely for free.
