Senior Care from Comfort Keepers of Fredericksburg, VA, and the surrounding areas
Learn how senior care can be the best option for you and your loved ones throughout Fredericksburg and the surrounding areas.
When it comes to elder care services, there is an extensive list of items we can provide you or your loved one. Each one of our services was specifically created to allow your senior loved one to live independently and happily within their own home. However, when most families or individuals consider which services they might need or who can provide them, the same question pops up: how will we pay for these services once we have a home care plan in place?
Paying for care shouldn’t be complicated, and we try to keep it that way! Comfort Keepers recommends a few different types of payment methods. The first is long-term care insurance. This type of insurance helps cover the cost of in-home care when it comes time for your loved one to utilize these services. This insurance is not the same as regular health insurance and is not (typically) covered by Medicare or Medicaid. However, if your loved one qualifies for Veterans Administration aid or other such programs, the VA will cover some portion of services for your loved one (even if you use Comfort Keepers). Most often, our clients pay for care out of pocket.
Care varies from client to client, so not everyone costs the same. At-home care is billed per hour, so if your loved one only needs light help a few hours a week, the costs will be less than for a loved one who requires extensive around-the-clock care. Considering all of this, it is incredibly important to remember that these senior home care services are significantly lower than what it would cost to house your loved one in a nursing home.

Once you have decided on a care provider, getting care should be the easy next step. All providers are different, but care starts with an in-home consultation within the Comfort Keepers system. This is where we analyze the seniors' dwelling situation, needs, and goals they might have for their care. After considering all items, we create a customized care plan that includes exactly what they would need and the schedule we believe fits best. This can be changed and altered to best fit your needs, and after deciding on a plan, care can begin as soon as we find a caregiver whose personality and skill set will best match your loved one's needs.
Many different kinds of services can be provided. If you’re curious, take some time to navigate through our care services pages, where many of the typical services we provide, such as Alzheimer's and Dementia care, 24-hour care, and post-hospital care, are laid out.
