Does your loved one need help while you are at work? Do your parents get confused and have trouble keeping their medications straight? At Home Quality Care will send a caregiver for the number of hours that you determine are needed for care. HOURLY CAREGIVERS ARE PROVIDED IN LACKAWANNA COUNTY ONLY.
Did you know that Nursing Home Placement does NOT have to be your first option when caring for a loved one! Your FIRST option can be "Live-In Homecare." In fact, your loved one may NEVER have to leave their home. At Home Quality Care understands that when a Client's wish is to remain in their home for the rest of their life, they should know that it’s possible.
At Home Quality Care provides Live-In Caregivers who provide one-on-one care and supervision around the clock in a Client’s home. Caregivers support Clients’ ADL’s (“Activities of Daily Living” such as bathing, dressing, medication reminders, etc.) and IADL’s (“Instrumental Activities of Daily Living” such as grocery shopping, transportation to medical appointments, light housekeeping, etc.).
Research has shown that when a Client is able to stay in their own home with one-on-one care and personal attention, they have a better chance to improve both physically and mentally! Maybe your loved one has memory issues such as the start of Alzheimer's Disease or Dementia, or maybe they have physical needs as a result of Congestive Heart Failure or Stroke. Whatever the need is, a Live-In Caregiver is trained to care for the Client and allow them to have great quality of life - at home!
"This sounds great but how does my loved one pay for these services?" At Home Quality Care provides information for multiple payment sources which include Long Term Care Insurances, Veterans Administration, Reverse Mortgages, Life Insurances and private resources. In addition to this, Medicaid can approve and pay for these services based on your finances and physical needs. In fact, Medicaid could pay up to 100% of your Live-In Caregiver costs at home!

Agency Vs. Registry
