What is skilled care?
Skilled Care is prescribed by a physician and the care is provided by a licensed professional such as a nurse or physical therapist. Visits are brief, task oriented and are covered by Medicare/Medicaid and most payers for a short period of time, like a few weeks. This is often ordered after a surgical procedure, hospitalization or after discharge from a nursing home.
Is my doctor involved?
Yes. Our Clinical team will work with you and your doctor to get the best possible results.
How long will someone come to care for me?
That depends on what you, your caregiver, physician and payer believe is best for you.
I don’t want to go to a nursing home, can you help me stay at home?
Yes. We have options to care for you as long as you are safe to remain at home. We can also help you and your loved ones make choices that are best for you.
What if I just need someone to help with chores in my home?
We can arrange for homemakers to assist with light housekeeping, meal preparation and laundry. We also have personal care providers to help with more hands-on care. Please see the Home Care section of this booklet for more information.
What is Senior Care in the home?
The goal of Senior Care in the home is to allow seniors to remain independent, in their homes as long as possible. It is care provided by a professional caregiver, companion, homemaker, nursing assistant or home health aides to assist with the non-medical, daily care needs, to help keep seniors independent. Our agency is insured and all of our staff are screened thoroughly.
