The Value of In- Home Care versus Skilled Nursing

When the time comes to decide how to help an elderly loved one through those difficult days when they aren’t physically able to care for themselves, the decision can difficult.

Medicare and Costs

Once Medicare stops covering the visit, most patients are paying between $500-$600/day to remain in skilled nursing when they could easily return home with care and save money, get more care and continue to get PT.

Once Medicare stops paying patients will no longer receive therapy, so there is no chance to continue to improve and rehabilitate. Home Care solutions provide a chance for patient’s to get better at home.
