TESTIMONIALS

“I am Kathryn Merrell and for the past several months I have been under the care of ABC Senior Services. I have had the privilege of enjoying the care of Lois C. She is the best advertisement for your agency. When I am asked, which happens frequently, about my experience with ABC, I refer to Lois as being your prime example of the type of care they can expect from you. She goes beyond just basic care and does all she can to help remedy any problem we have. I love that I can trust her and feel safe having her share my home with me. She is very professional yet very “down home”, a rare combination. You should be very thankful she is on your “team”! Because of her, I have no problem recommending your company to all who ask.”

“We were blown away and continue to be by the quality of service and care that the team of ALWAYS BEST CARE provides our family. My parents were moving from out of state and were in immediate need of in-home care. Melisa was wonderful! She was able to help us line up the intake paperwork, clinical assessment and a caregiver within 24 hours of my parents’ arrival in to their new home. Millie and Bethany are tremendous support as their clinical nurse team with a very thorough assessment of both parents. Mary is their care coordinator and was very helpful with finding the perfect caregivers and coordinate the right schedule for my parents . Melisa, Nicole, Jennifer and Janet are also a tremendous asset as they handle and place the caregivers! Jim Smeaton, their owner should be proud of his company! We highly recommend them!”

“ABC in Fletcher has an amazing team, and they made a huge difference for myself and my mother. We had them as in-home caregivers for 10 months. They are responsible, flexible and just a solid group with whom to work. I could reach them by phone immediately almost every time I needed to contact them. They handled billing and insurance claims and kept the caregiver plans absolutely up-to-date. As well as the regular RN visits. Jan, Mary and Melissa rock in addition to our caregivers. My only reason for not giving five stars has to do with the systemic challenge of finding enough caregivers. And in our case, caregivers who are proficient with Parkinson’s patients.”

“I like working with Always Best Care Senior Services because the office staff are so nice and understanding and I have gotten to know them on a level that I know they are here to help me, when I need help or have a questions. From day one when I have called, they have ALL been here to help guide me and they have been there every time I’ve had a questions. Working for ABC has been an honor because I really do love the company and we have some sweet clients. The ladies that work in the office are amazing and without them I do not think our company would thrive like it does. When I did an application, it was on accident and then I got a phone call asking me to come in and interview and honestly I’m so blessed. I love my job because it is my passion to help people and to do what I can to make their daily living better and easier. I honestly don’t think there is anything that needs to change about ABC. I have never worked for such an amazing company before”

“I own a financial services business and share clients with Always Best Care. Recently, one of our shared clients experienced a fall which resulted in a broken hip. One of my first calls, after EMS, was to ABC. Mary Steiner responded immediately and offered to meet the client at the ER. She was wonderful and so very professional in the manner in which she handled the entire harrowing experience. She arranged for overnight care since the family had to arrive from out of town. I am so grateful for her genuine care for our client and stepping in during an emergency to help us handle the situation. I would recommend ABC for services because they absolutely go above and beyond with such a special touch. Robbie Chenault, Elevated Living Services”

FAQs About Skilled Home Health Care Services

Female-Caregiver-Mobile Female-Caregiver-Desktop

Absolutely! Federal law gives patients the freedom to choose their home healthcare provider. It would be our honor to care for you, or your loved one when you need us most!

Home health is designed to help you recover in the comfort of your home through skilled nurses and rehabilitation services. Home health must be ordered by a physician when they determine that your condition requires you to stay at home for rehab and recovery from illness, injury or surgery. Home health is the most cost effective option for receiving care as it allows for patients and their families to be home where they want to be.

Home health is skilled clinical care ordered by a health care provider. These services might include things like nursing, physical therapy and occupational therapy, and are designed to help you manage your condition and regain your independence after illness, injury, or surgery.
Personal home care assistance involves non-clinical services, such as help around the house, transportation, bathing, and light meal preparation.

Paying for home health services can be done through various methods, depending on your specific situation and the options available to you. Here are some common payment methods:

Medicare: If you qualify for Medicare, it may cover 100% of your home health services. Medicare is a federal health insurance program primarily for individuals aged 65 and older, but it can also cover younger individuals with certain disabilities. To be eligible for Medicare coverage of home health services, you typically need a doctor’s order and meet specific criteria related to your health condition.

Private Insurance: Many private health insurance plans cover home health services. The coverage and requirements can vary significantly from one insurance plan to another, so it’s essential to check with your insurance provider to understand your specific coverage and any out-of-pocket costs you might incur.

Medicare Advantage: Some individuals choose to enroll in Medicare Advantage plans (Part C), which are offered by private insurance companies approved by Medicare. These plans often include coverage for home health services, but the specifics can vary by plan.

Long-Term Care Insurance: Long-term care insurance policies are designed to cover the costs of various long-term care services, including home health care. If you have such a policy, check your coverage to see if it includes home health services and any specific requirements for reimbursement.

Veteran’s Benefits: Veterans may be eligible for home health services coverage through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Eligibility and coverage depend on factors such as your service-connected disability status and other criteria. Contact the VA or your local Veterans Health Administration office for more information.

Workers’ Compensation: If your need for home health services is related to a work-related injury or illness, workers’ compensation insurance may cover the costs. This generally applies to injuries or illnesses that occurred on the job.

Private Pay: If you don’t have insurance coverage or if the services you require are not covered, you can choose to pay for home health services out of pocket. The cost will depend on the specific services needed and the rates charged by the home health agency.

Before receiving home health services, it’s crucial to verify your eligibility and coverage options. This often involves discussing your insurance or payment method with the home health agency’s financial team. They can assist you in navigating the payment process and help answer any questions you may have about financing your care.

Always Best Care Senior Services offers a wide range of home health services to our patients. Whether the patient is recovering from illness or injury, or has a long-term condition, Always Best Care Senior Services provides skilled, compassionate, healthcare in the comfort of your home.

Our services include, but are not limited to:

  • IV Therapy: Intravenous therapy at home is a way to receive IV treatment your doctor has prescribed, without having to go to a hospital or clinic. Home IV Therapy is safe and effective alternative to in-patient care.
  • Chronic Disease Management: We help patients and their families manage disease process through care, education, and support.
  • Wound & Ostomy Care: We have Wound Care & Ostomy Specialist who provide the highest level of medical services for hard-to-heal wounds, as well as ostomy care, including colostomy, ileostomy, fistulas, and leaking tube/drain sites.
  • Therapy Services: Our physical, occupational, and speech therapists will come to you or your family member’s home to evaluate your loved one’s health and physical abilities and coordinate a complete therapeutic care plan with your loved one’s doctors to restore his or her best health.
  • Medication management, monitoring, and education
  • Post-Surgical Aftercare
  • Tracheotomy Care
  • Catheter Care
  • Cognitive Training
  • Diet Teaching
  • Injections
  • Cancer Care: If you or a loved one is recovering from surgery or undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments your health care needs may be complex. Therapists and in-home health professionals will come to you to provide the care you need in the comfort of home. You can count on us for:
    • Pain and symptom management
    • Infusion therapy
    • Management of ports and access devices
    • Nutrition and dietary support
    • Resource planning for help with meals, transportation, applying for medical assistance, advocating with insurance companies, and support to stay comfortably at home
    • Follow up with your physician to assess treatment and progress

At your first visit a nurse will conduct an initial comprehensive assessment through a combination of interview and hands on assessment. The assessment will focus on identifying areas where you may benefit from education on self-care management in addition to providing hands on intervention. Your nurse will review all your medications and make sure you are taking them correctly and safely, as well as assist you in setting them up if needed. Your nurse will collaborate with your physician and determine the level of care you need. This approach helps to allow you to stay in the comfort of your home and actively engages you and your caregiver in your health care.

The frequency and type of home health visits and the services provide are based on your individualized plan of care. Your doctor may change your plan of care, increasing or decreasing the number of visits or services provided, in order to provide you with the best care possible.

An individual shall be considered to be “confined to his home” if the individual has a condition, due to an illness or injury, that restricts the ability of the individual to leave his or her home except with the assistance of another individual or the aid of a supportive devise (such as crutches, a cane, a wheelchair, or a walker), or if the individual has a condition such that leaving his or her home is medically contraindicated. While an individual does not have to be bedridden to be considered “confined to his home”, the condition of the individual should be such that there exists a normal inability to leave home or that leaving home requires a considerable and taxing effort by the individual.

Yes. If you or a loved one is interested in receiving skilled home health care services, speak with your primary care physician, nurse practitioner, or other health care provider.

Personal home care is often needed alongside skilled home health services, and we can help coordinate the two levels of care. A limited number of your personal home care hours may be covered by Medicare while you’re receiving clinical in-home care, but it’s generally paid separately or covered by private insurance or other government programs.
