Who Pays for Private Care?

Private care services allow for clients to personalize their care to fit their needs.

Private care services, sometimes referred to as “private duty” or “private pay” services, are self-paid home care services in which you, the client, are able to dictate what type of care you need and how often you need it. Some insurance cover the cost of private care services, but there may be certain criteria or limits in how much care can be provided. In most instances, private care services are an out-of-pocket expense to the client.

Benefits of home care

Unlike Medicare-reimbursed home healthcare services, the patient has full control over their plan of care, including how much or little care they wish to receive. As we age, our needs change. Private care services allow for this flexibility of care, and there is no limit for how much care you can receive.

Private care offers its clients a multitude of benefits such as:

  • Peace of mind for you or your loved one
  • Ability to live safely at home
  • Independence
  • Professional caregivers who oversee the health and wellbeing of our clients
