What is in-home care?
In home care is assistance with daily needs at your own home. It could be help with meals, grocery shopping, rides to appointments. It could also be a higher level of care such as help transferring in and out of bed, help with bathing or using the restroom. Happy at Home has a wide range of services to help you accomplish the things you need to while maintaining as much personal independence as possible.
Is there insurance that covers in-home care?
Yes, there are long term care insurance policies that cover in home care services. Sometimes clients have a policy and their families don’t know they do. Be sure to find out if your loved one has an existing policy, it could help cover in home car expenses. We offer customized care plans to meet your family’s budget and needs.
I only need respite care a few hours a week, is it worth it?
Definitely. If you don’t take care of yourself, you won’t be able to be there for others. We offer a two hour shift minimum. The only regret family members have had when signing up for respite care is that they didn’t call sooner. We can provide care for your loved ones so you can get a well-deserved break, have time to run errands for yourself, have a date night with your spouse, or take a trip.
My family member doesn't have a car, how can they get to appointments or outings?
All of our caregivers have their own licensed insured vehicles and accident free DMV driving records. Happy at Home’s insurance also covers caregivers while they are in your service; whether providing transportation, or providing service in the home.
My family member lives in an assisted living family/community, can we still hire you?
Yes. Many of our clients reside in assisted living facilities; our services complement and enhance their experience. Often facilities are challenged with being able to meet every resident’s individual needs. We can give your loved one the personal assistance, attention, and companionship they deserve. We can provide transportation and escort them to and from appointments and outings on their own schedules not the schedule of the facility.
