Home care (also sometimes known as personal care or private-duty) companies typically provide in-home, non-clinical services that help patients live independently. Caregivers may assist patients with daily activities like getting dressed or bathing, or may perform light housekeeping duties. Traditionally these services may be covered by any of a number of payors, such as Medicaid or other public funding sources, private pay or long-term care insurance.

Other services may include assistance with managing household tasks while the patient is being cared for; counseling for the patient, family and friends; and respite care for the patient’s caregivers. Hospice services are traditionally covered under the Medicare benefit. Find out more here about the current market for hospice providers from one of our experienced advisors.
