As our country’s demographics continue shifting to a larger number of older adults and people continue to live longer, the need for health care will continue to rise, and costs will continue to skyrocket. The demand for home care and hospice services will increase as more and more of your friends, families and neighbors will be receiving care in their homes.
This is where home care comes in. As the preferred choice for most patients, it also offers the greatest cost savings. For example, Medicare pays nearly $2,000 per day for a typical hospital stay and $450 per day for a typical nursing home stay. Meanwhile, home care costs less than $100 a day and helps many U.S. seniors remain independent at home, enrich their lives, and keep in touch with those they love.
During November, the home care and hospice community honor the millions of nurses, home care aides, therapists, and social workers who make a remarkable difference for the patients and families they serve. These heroic caregivers play a central role in our health care system and in homes across the nation. To recognize their efforts, take a minute to thank those who care for seniors and loved ones during some of the most vulnerable times in their lives. ProAction Insurance encourages you to take time this month to recognize the dedication and critical roles that home care professionals play in the quality of living of so many people.
