In-home care services are a cost-effective alternative to facility-based nursing home care and have been since the 1970s. It is well documented that providing these services reduces the rate at which at-risk older adults utilize nursing homes, enabling them to maintain their independence in their own homes. In-home care services provide consumers on-going assistance with activities of daily living (ADL), which may include services like:
- Meal preparation
- Medication reminders
These supportive services can be arranged for any frequency of time, from one to twenty-four hours of care daily, or on a respite or temporary basis. Addus works with clients, their families and other relevant health care providers to customize care plans, designed to keep individuals safe, healthy and independent at home.
These services are funded through a variety of sources, including:
- Medicaid Waiver Programs
- Long-Term Care Insurance
- Veterans Benefits
- Private Pay
- Other location-specific social service programs
