Workers Compensation:  

  • If you or a family member has incurred any serious illnesses, you may be entitled to compensation. This is effectively a disability insurance program for workers, providing cash benefits, healthcare benefits, or both to workers who suffer injury or illness as a direct result of their jobs. 

Out-of-Pocket/Private Pay:

  • Many families are responsible for covering the costs of this type of treatment for a family member. Assisted living, for example, is typically paid for out of pocket. While in-home elder care is often less expensive than institutional care, expenses vary depending on the type of assistance needed and the number of hours required to complete the care plan. 
  • Families who want to learn more about companion care, respite care, or personal affordable home care for their loved ones are urged to contact our office to discuss the components of a customized care plan for their loved ones.

Veteran's Benefits:

  • Veterans and the surviving spouses of veterans may be eligible for some in home care assistance from the Department of Veterans Affairs, either through health benefits offered to veterans or in the form of a monthly cash benefit.
  • These advantages may be amplified if your loved one is unable to leave home. Comfort Keepers has established rapport with the VA and is able to offer assistance to anyone seeking to enroll in VA benefits. 

Long-Term Care Insurance: 

  • This sort of policy may pay for non-medical care. When you have a chronic medical condition, a handicap or an illness like Alzheimer's disease, long-term care insurance coverage can assist pay the expenses of such care. 
  • Long-term care insurance is similar to auto or house insurance in that the policyholder pays a premium for as long as the policy is active. If you're not sure whether your loved one has long-term care coverage, ask their financial adviser or power of attorney. 

Respite Vouchers: 

  • The focus of the Respite Voucher Program is caregiver relief. Our staff works with each approved family to find the best respite care option for their needs. Vouchers are only used to pay for breaks from hands-on caregiving. The voucher program is funded by a variety of federal, state, and local sources.
