Who Is Eligible to Receive In Home Care Services?

Most often, those receiving personal home care services include the elderly, persons with disabilities, patients recovering from injury or illness and those with chronic conditions, such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. 

Unlike home health care services, personal care services are non-medical in nature and may be provided without a prescription or regular certification.  It is important to work with your senior loved one, their medical team and your personal care agency or assistant to evaluate the personal care services that will be most beneficial for your unique situation.  Sometimes, personal care services will be enough while others may benefit from a combination of home care and home health care.

Benefits of Personal Care Services

There are a number of benefits to choosing this type of in home care over an assisted living facility or a nursing home.

  • Ability to Stay at Home.  Most seniors would prefer to be able to live out their life in their own home, particularly if they are still able to receive a level of companionship that personal care services provide.  Oftentimes, having help with simple tasks is enough to allow an elderly person to live safely and comfortably at home for years.
  • Lower Cost.  While there is a certain cost involved with personal home care, it is most often significantly less than what the cost of assisted living or a nursing home would be.  It is also possible to not have any cost when you apply for Medicaid-Waiver benefits through CICOA
  • Personalized Needs.  Personal care attendants are able to focus on the precise needs of the client.  Every situation is completely different and while some may need 24 hour care, others may only require an hour or so per day.
  • Enhanced Quality of Life.  We have found that personal care services allow our senior clients to enjoy a wonderful quality of life, thanks to their ability to live at home, maintain a degree of independence and form a close bond with their caregiver
