As you grow older, you may decide that a home health agency is the best way for you to maintain your quality of life and your independence. With this kind of service, you get the helping hands you need to stay up on your day-to-day activities but have the freedom to remain in your own home enjoying your usual pastimes.
The problem, though, is that while some home health agencies offer quality services and dedicated care, others are lackluster and some are, unfortunately, downright negligent. How do you guarantee that you end up with an agency who will deliver the care you need?
To help you answer that question, Medicare has created a Home Health Compare website where patients can rate the quality of their care. On the site, you’ll see ratings for things as simple as helping you manage your daily activities to more complicated provisions like helping you avoid trips to the hospital.
With their simple 5-star rating system, you can make sure you choose a home health agency that will not just dot every i and cross every t, but will also be dedicated to tailoring your care to meet your specific needs.
Once you find the right home health agency to protect your freedom and your wellbeing, you will want to also protect your wallet. Fortunately, with long term care insurance the expense of this type of ongoing care can be covered.
