Determining Home Care Needs

When it’s time to consider home care needs for individuals dealing with illness, injury, or the natural process of aging, it’s important to evaluate the situation from every angle. For care givers, determining these needs can feel overwhelming without the right information. At Affordable Medical Supply, we are dedicated to the education of care givers, family members, and the generation of people sandwiched between their children and their parents.

The first step in determining home care needs is to assess the specific medical and non-medical needs. An evaluation of these needs begins by taking into account the severity of illness or injury, ongoing medical treatments, and any mobility or cognitive considerations. The individual lifestyle must be considered too, including daily activities and routines.

It may be helpful to keep these questions in mind:

  1. Will home care be a combination of physical health assistance and household help?
  2. Is home modification necessary?
  3. What financial restrictions or limitations are present?
  4. Is hands-on care (bathing, feeding, dressing, toileting) required?

Exploring Home Care Options

Because every situation is unique and often delicate, knowing the types of home care available is a valuable tool that can save hours of frustration. For people who are sandwiched between two generations and end up caring for both their children and their parents at the same time, home care choices can be the best option available.

Different care options include the following:

Custodial Care

Custodial care is the type of home care most commonly recommended for individuals with medical, physical, or mental conditions. It is ideal for people who require assistance in everyday activities like eating, bathing, and getting dressed. It is a non-medical type of care, so providers are not required to be medical professionals.

Custodial care is a common option for aging in place, and is often associated with long-term care for conditions like Alzheimer’s disease. Sometimes referred to as supportive care, it is not considered medically necessary care, and therefore will not be covered by most insurance plans.

Skilled Care

This type of home care is what most people think of when considering in-home medical care. It is round-the-clock care provided by skilled and licensed medical professionals in the event of an injury, surgery, or short-term illness. Patients who need skilled care could have suffered a stroke, a major fall, or are recovering from extensive surgery, such as a hip replacement.

Unlike custodial care, skilled care is considered medically necessary and is supervised or directed by a physician. Skilled care staff may include nurses, social workers, home health aides, and therapists.

Our medical care consultant can help you learn the differences between the two types of care, as well as provide resources for insurance coverage, contacts, and more.

The Role Of A Medical Care Consultant

What equipment and services will insurance cover? How much, if anything will be covered at all? What kind of equipment is necessary? Navigating the waters of in-home medical care is stressful, we know. These questions, and so many more, can keep you up at night. A friendly, understanding medical care consultant is specially trained to help you every step of the way.

When you schedule your personal meeting with our experienced team, you’ll get one-on-one, personalized support, no matter what type of in-home care is needed. Once we’ve talked with you, our team spends time researching and organizing a personalized approach designed for you.

With 45 years of experience in the industry, we know the ins, outs, frustrations, and setbacks that come with caregiver roles. Though it can be a rewarding journey, it’s also time-consuming, stressful, and emotional at times. Our dedicated concierge services coordinator will work with you (or your care manager) to create a tailored plan for your unique situation.

We’ll consider the type of care, insurance coverage, resources, supplies, equipment and everything in between when designing a care plan. Because of our long-standing history in the medical care business, we’ve seen many different situations, and can often provide solutions or ideas that were previously unknown to you.
