Now, thanks to the astonishing availability of mobile treatments, healthcare is moving swiftly back into the home, including end-of-life hospice care.
There was a time within the memories of most seniors when doctors visited their patients. As medicine offered more complex procedures, patient care moved to hospitals and specialized clinics. Now, thanks to the astonishing availability of mobile treatments, healthcare is swiftly returning to the home, including end-of-life hospice care. The critical benefit is that most in-home care is covered by insurance, including Medicare. Medicare augmented by the Advantage overlay can provide seniors with a solid insurance base to which specialized policies can be added as advisable.
Here’s what the United States government says www.medicare.gov
“Home healthcare is less expensive, more convenient and just as effective as care you get in a hospital or skilled nursing facility.”
Note that this comparison is to “hospital and skilled nursing facility” - institutions offering services far more sophisticated than those found in Assisted Living. The Congressional Budget Office also weighed in on the subject stating that nearly half of the elderly in nursing homes could be cared for in their homes.
There are many effective insurance plans, and all seniors should carefully deliberate the wisest option for a secure and satisfying life.
