What is the difference between home health care and private duty personal care?
“Home Healthcare” is Medicare certified health care, prescribed by your physician, and provided in the comfort of your home or residence. It covers a wide range of health care services including skilled nursing, physical, occupational and speech therapies for clients who are “homebound” and meet certain conditions.
“Private Duty Personal Care” provides services of your choice based on your needs and wishes and can include skilled nursing services, companion home care services, home management, and memory care. ADL Caregivers is a Private Duty service, we provide the help and allow you to choose how much or how often that help is provided.
What is private duty home care?
Private duty home care companies provide home care aides, companion care, homemaker services and may provide nursing services in the client’s home or place of residence.
Who pays for private duty home care?
There are multiple ways to pay for private duty home care. The most common methods for covering the cost of private duty home care is private pay or long term care insurance benefits. We are happy to work with your insurance company to discuss your benefit plan and thus provide information to you and your family so that you can make an informed decision on your care needs. We will also assist you by billing the insurance company directly.
Are your services available for the elderly in nursing homes or assisted living facilities?
Yes, we provide services wherever clients reside.

Why choose an ADL caregiver?

What happens if my caregiver is sick?
It’s not a problem. We orient multiple employees who can meet your care needs. If one home health aide, nurse, or caregiver is sick, another is normally available.
What is Respite Care?
Respite care is temporary care from other people to give the primary caregiver (usually a family member) a break.Respite care is a great option for those who have become family caregivers for their loved ones. Respite care can include either a caregiver coming to the home, or your loved one being placed in a nursing home or assisted care facility for a short time period. This helps to provide relief and give the family caregivers time to take care of personal needs while knowing that their loved ones are being cared for. Respite care is usually necessary for family caregivers whose loved ones required full time care.

Who pays the caregiver that comes to our home or place of residence?
We handle all aspects of the payroll. Our clients and/or their families will pay monthly invoices for services rendered directly to us.
Do I need a certified caregiver?
Not always, it depends on the services you need. If you or your loved one requires hands-off services, such as transportation, light housekeeping, meal preparation, and medication reminders, you don’t need to hire a certified home health or home maker aide. If you seek hands-on services or medical assistance, such as bathing, dressing, toileting, physical therapy, and medication administration, you can hire a certified aide as quality assurance.
Can I trust an ADL caregiver?
You might not be comfortable with a stranger in your home. ADL does security screens on all our hires. Plus, our caregivers are insured and bonded. If you do experience concerns with your caregiver, you may address them with our office and we can facilitate placing a new one if needed. Another way to ease the stress is to meet one of our caregivers first, to make sure you both feel comfortable with each other.
Is hiring a caregiver a sufficient step for our specific needs?
Caregivers and home care can help a person age independently in the comfort of their own homes. However, depending on the circumstances, a person may require further assistance than what a caregiver can provide. For instance, you or your loved one may require 24-hour care, particularly if dementia is part of the issue. Further, considering the cost of 24-hour home care, perhaps moving to an assisted living facility or other form of senior housing may be a more financially sound decision. One of our senior care advisors should be able to better determine exactly what you or your loved one needs, and where the best place to receive that care is.
How can I find out what government benefits cover me or a loved one?
We’re happy to help find out if government benefits will cover the costs for you or a loved one. However, the easiest way to identify the government benefits your relative may qualify for is to complete an online questionnaire. Benefits.gov or BenefitsCheckUp.org are good options. You can also research online and visit the National Council on Aging, the National Institute on Aging (part of the National Institute of Health), or ElderCare.gov for more information on available options.
What is long-term care insurance and how can it help me?
Long-term insurance, as the name suggests, is a type of insurance plan that covers long-term care. Most plans cover everything from in-home care, to community care and residential facility care. It also may cover compensation for family caregivers. Ordinary health insurance policies do not cover long-term costs, usually. Neither does Medicare, making long-term insurance an alternative to help cover long-term care expenses. Be advised that these types of plans should be purchased early on, and premium costs vary greatly depending on age, health, wealth, benefits cover, among other factors. They can be very expensive. For more information about long-term care insurance, see FCA’s publication, Insuring Your Future: What Caregivers Need to Know About Long-Term Care Insurance. The AARP also has resources and consumer tops for finding and purchasing long-term care insurance: www.aarp.org
Does Medicare pay for private duty care?
No, Medicare offers no coverage for private duty care. Private duty care is mainly covered by either long term care insurance benefits or is paid directly by our clients and/or their families.
Does private duty care include: RN’s, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists and/or social workers?
No, but we due to the needs of many of our clients we have established a relationship with a trusted Medicare certified Home Health Agency, that can provide all of these services to our clients as ordered by their physician.
What if my loved one requires medical equipment such as: hospital bed, wheel chair, shower bench, etc.
