When Will the Economy Start Caring About Home Care Work?

The Atlantic recently published a timely article about the struggles home care workers face un our current job market. Home care workers help the elderly and those in need of serious health care remain in their own homes for longer periods of time. Instead of moving to an assisted living facility or nursing home, these individuals can remain in their place of comfort while still receiving excellent medical care. Unfortunately, the cost of these services is staggering. Some Medicaid programs will cover this type of treatment. If more people can stay at home, Medicaid can use state and federal funds to help others in need. Check out the article below. If you or your loved ones are facing this type of issue or a looming nursing home stay, please come see us to discuss your options. Protect your life savings.
