  • What is our Senior Care Management program about?

    Our program is geared to help seniors stay at home by addressing all aspects of their lives. (medical care, personal care needs, medication monitoring, home safety and socialization). We also coordinate with doctors and family members to satisfy all of our seniors' personal needs.

    Who uses our services?

    While our services can be used by anyone, the Senior Care Program is mostly used by seniors who wish to remain at home in spite of impairment and relatives who are responsible caregivers and live at a distance.

    What is the difference between a companion or home maker and a home health aide?

    A companion or home maker will prepare meals, do light housekeeping and keep the person company. Only a certified home health aide is allowed to provide hands-on care such as bathing and dressing. A certified home health aide has completed a 76-hour training program with supervision; there are no training requirements for a home maker/companion.

    How do I decide on a schedule for home care?

    Each home care schedule is unique to the needs and desires of our clients. Because we consider ourselves an extension of your family, it is most helpful to count on us when you can't be there. Our Patient Evaluation is performed by a Registered Nurse. Think about what time of day is most difficult for you and the older adult. Having a set routine as much as possible will benefit the care giver and the client. Make sure your needs are met by the home care schedule, but be flexible.

    What can I expect from the Registered Nurse?

    The nurse is responsible for seeing the client once a case is opened. The nurse will do a health assessment and review all medications; she will also make weekly visits. The nurse is required to supervise the care the home health aide delivers.

    Is it appropriate to ask a home health aide to do house cleaning?

    A home health aide will do light housekeeping as it relates to the client. For example, if a bath is given to the client, the aide will clean the tub or clean the kitchen area after preparation of a meal.  

    Can home care expenses qualify as a medical deduction?

    Yes, providing you maintain adequate documentation and pay all of the appropriate taxes either through an agency or on your own. Home care will qualify as a medical expense; consult your accountant for more details.

    Who pays for services?

    Senior Care Management services are payed for by families who need assistance caring for an elderly loved one. Please call (305) 322-8863 or info@lifetimehhc.com for more information on pricing. We will provide the communication and care that you need when you are not available.
