Avoid Pitfalls with In Home Health Care Guide

The Family Guide to In Home Health Care


Considering Home Health Care?



No worries, I have created a home health care guide to help support you.


It is the goal of aging seniors to remain in their homes as they age. They do not want to be placed in a nursing or assisted living.


Family caregivers often make a promise to help keep their aging family member home. When they make that promise, they do not understand that over time, they cannot do it all.


In Home health care is an answer for many family caregivers. It helps them maintain some kind of balance in their lives.


Seniors want to remain in their home. They do not want a stranger in the home to help them… be successful to remain as independent as possible. This makes having in home care difficult to initiate.


The primary caregiver must also take time to learn … the many different kinds of home care available to them.


When exploring options, many are surprised that Medicare does not pay for home care as they know it.


Medicare pays for “skilled” care needs.


That means, they provide intermittent short visits by a nurse or physical therapist. They address specific issues for a few weeks, and then they close the case.


Deciding on home health care has many aspects that must  be taken into consideration:

  • Other support from family and friends
  • Family dynamics
  • Expectations of the senior
  • And even cultural expectations.


Once the need for home care is decided, it is time to sit down and what services will best meet the needs of both parties.  Typically, primary caregivers tend to make decisions based on feelings of guilt. Most, do not realize that they have rights to live their own life.


The Family Guide to in Home Health Care was created to help empower the caregiver to make logical decisions … on getting help in the home. Because of the intimate nature of the care provided… there are many things that can happen unexpectedly. Let us help you be prepared for a good home care experience.
