Life Force Caregivers for the Elderly has provided personalized live-in custodial care to hundreds of seniors since 1989. A live-in home health aide is an alternative to an assisted living or long-term care nursing facility by assisting with activities of daily living right in the comfort of your own home. While conducting the initial assessment of a client's needs and expectations, families naturally ask questions about Life Force's services. One question that sometimes arises is: What is the advantage of working with an agency like Life Force over hiring our own private aide?
When choosing between these two options families normally make a decision based upon price. Hiring a private aide is typically cheaper than working with a licensed agency, but a private caregiver easily becomes more costly in the end.
Long-term care insurance (LTCI) is a privately owned insurance policy that pays for the cost of live-in custodial care. An individual will pay monthly premiums until there is a need for assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). Typically an LTCI policy requires assistance with three or more ADLs for the beneficiary to qualify to receive payments for live-in elder care services.
Make life easier by reviewing the list below. Addressing these items early will reduce much stress and disappointment when submitting a claim with your long term care insurance company.
We asked you, you told us. Here are the answers to the most important question we asked you in our elder care survey.
Over the past 24 months, Life Force, a provider of live-in caregivers for the elderly, conducted a survey across Eastern Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey. The survey was conducted among 322 professionals in the home health care industry, including social workers (37% of sample), registered nurses (23%), administration (10%), volunteer coordinators (10%), directors of services (9%), and others.
This survey asked respondents questions relevant to the home care industry, particularly the live-in personal care industry. The key question in the survey asked what the top three most important considerations are upon referring a client for live-in personal care.
Below is a breakdown of the survey, as well as how Life Force delivers on each count.
