Personalized Home Care in Houston Texas

Video 7: What is the difference between home healthcare services and private duty home care services?

Home Healthcare services are typically medically necessary.  They are paid for by Medicare or other health insurance, and have been ordered by a physician. Private duty home care services are typically companion type services like errand running, light housekeeping, light meal preparation, medication reminders, light laundry, grocery shopping, transportation to MD appointments, going for walks, getting the mail and other non-medical activities. Private duty home care services are typically paid for privately, or using long-term care insurance, reverse mortgage proceeds, or Veterans aid and attendance pension benefits, or some combination of any of these programs.

For most of us, the word "home" evokes warm feelings of comfort, security and well-being. For older adults, home also means holding tight to cherished memories and maintaining self-esteem and independence. When illness, injury or age make life a little more challenging, remaining at home in a comfortable, familiar environment encourages recovery and enhances the quality of life. Home can be defined as a private residence, an independent or assisted living facility or even a short term stay in the hospital, we recognize the additional benefits provided by a personal, professional assistant.
