24-Hour Home Care

What is 24-Hour Home Care?

24-Hour Home Care is provided by caregiver(s) or senior helper(s) who are available to provide caregiving services throughout the day and night. This usually requires 2 in-home caregivers that rotate shifts.

What is Live-In Home Care?

Live-In care is provided by a single caregiver who provides caregiving services throughout the day, sleeps at night and provides assistance when help is occasionally needed at night. They must be able to get adequate sleep to be rested for the next day. A caregiver working a 16-hour or 24-hour shift may provide the necessary care and coverage required.

When is 24-Hour Care Needed?

24-Hour Home Care should be strongly considered for persons living alone with cognitive impairment, such as dementia and memory failures, or physical disabilities preventing proper hydration, meal preparation, toileting, self-administration of medications, high fall risks, or requiring around-the-clock care and supervision.

9 Signs 24-Hour Care May Be Necessary

  1. Cognitive impairment, such as Alzheimer’s, dementia or memory-impairment. Have they gotten lost? Would they know what to do in an emergency? Have they left the stove on?
  2. Physical or cognitive disabilities preventing them from maintaining proper hydration. The effects of dehydration are rapid and severe.
  3. Physical or cognitive disabilities preventing meal preparation and consumption.
  4. Cannot use the toilet without assistance and lives alone.
  5. Prone to falling. A leading cause of hospitalization and death among seniors.
  6. Cannot properly self-administer medications due to cognitive or physical impairment. Forgets to take their medications or forgets that they took their medications.
  7. Recovering from an illness or surgery and is temporarily disabled and needs assistance throughout the day and occasionally at night.
  8. Overwhelmed by daily tasks and responsibilities.
  9. Living isolated and alone.
  10. Bonus: Would you be comfortable leaving your own child in their care for a week?

Does Medicare Pay for 24-Hour Home Care?

Medicare only provides coverage for “medical services” and medical items. Home care services provided by home caregivers are considered “non-medical” services by Medicare. Therefore, they are not a covered benefit of the Medicare program, and not eligible for payment.

After a hospital discharge, it’s not unusual for our clients to have both a home health care/hospice agency provide medical services, and home caregivers providing the “non-medical“ essential care and assistance that enables our clients to continue living in the comfort of their home.

  • Medicare covers inpatient hospital care and some of the doctors’ fees and other medical items for people who are age 65 or older. Medicare Part D also covers many prescription drugs.
 
  • Medicare will pay for up to 100 days of skilled nursing home care under limited circumstances. However, custodial long-term nursing home care is not covered.
 
  • Medicare will pay for hospice care delivered in the home, a nursing facility or an inpatient hospice facility for people who are determined by a doctor to be near the end of life.
 
  • Medicare will not cover the cost of non-medical home care (long-term care) in the home, even though the services home caregivers provide may be essential to being able to receive home health care and hospice services.
