Considering your options

When choosing a Home Care services company, you will have many doubts. The foremost affair to infer is that Home Care services vary from facility-based alternatives. Chances are if you’re researching senior care you’ve heard a lot about senior housing alternatives such as a nursing home, assisted living community, adult day care, retirement community, or continuing care retirement community (or CCRC). These elderly care options all have unique benefits; however, at home care is often the preferred choice for seniors who wish to age in place in their own home. Your financial, societal, and health situation will often decide which environment you prefer. Depending on your loved one needs, you may opt for him or her to receive non-medical home care to supply them with companionship and supervision throughout the daytime when you’re unable to pay heed to their demands. A non-medical caregiver is as thoroughly vetted as a caregiver with RN or LPN-experience, but may be a better fit for your budget and loved one’s needs.

If your goal is to stay at home, we can assist

When families choose the at home option of aging they are often choosing to keep the family together. While making the decision to age at home is a great first step, there are many variations of home care and support services that you should know about.As you research your options, start by understanding the variety of home care options available in your community:

  • Home and Community Based Services:Supportive services available to seniors and disabled adults that align for one mission – to help those with physical or mental limitations to live in their own home. Some are free, some are paid by the government, non-profits, or other businesses depending on qualification and need.
  • Home Care Registry: Also known as the Consumer Directed Model or a Registry, this model of home care puts families and clients in control of their care. You receive services from self-employed professional caregivers, often Home Health Aides (HHA) or Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), who are in the profession of caregiving and have many years of experience. It is common for Home Care Registries to refer caregivers who have 15-20 or more years of experience assisting mostly with the non-medical needs of their clients. Typically care is paid privately and with long-term care insurance. Most Griswold Home Care offices operate as a Home Care Registry, although the model may vary by state. Contact your local office to discuss the local operating model.
  • Home Health Agency: A home health agency is usually a medical variety of home care and provides mainly skilled care, physical therapy, and occupational therapy for homebound patients. Usually funded by Medicaid, this payment source will only pay for skilled care for a limited amount of time and the home health aides (HHA) must follow a prescribed treatment of medical support as directed by a physician. Home Health Care may include home health agencies, medical equipment suppliers, technology services, hospice, social, and therapeutic providers. Please keep in mind that if you opt for a non-medical home care agency that these services may not be covered under Medicaid.
  • Private Hire or Independent Providers: Usually this service involves the family sourcing, screening, and hiring a caregiver directly. This process can be risky as the recruiting time is very resource intensive and opens more possibilities that you could hire an unqualified aide.
