Frequently asked questions
What services do you provide?
At Cuidado Casero we provide home health, hospice and personal care assistance. Please refer to our locations page for a full list of services provided at each location.
What is Home Health Care?
Home health care is a wide range of health care services that can be given in your home for an illness or injury. Home health care is usually less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective as the care you get in a hospital or skilled nursing facility (SNF).
Examples of skilled home health services include:
- Wound care for pressure sores or a surgical wound
- Patient and caregiver education
- Intravenous or nutrition therapy
- Monitoring serious illness and unstable health status
The goal of home health care is to treat an illness or injury. Home health care helps you get better, regain your independence, and become as self-sufficient as possible.
What is Personal Home Care Assistance?
Personal care services provide seniors and disabled individuals with compassionate assistance for activities of daily living, which may be difficult or unsafe for these individuals to perform on their own. Also referred to as private duty care, these services cover personal activities, like dressing and bathing, and homemaking tasks, like meal preparation and light housekeeping.
What is Hospice Care?
Formally speaking, hospice care is that which can be provided to patients with a life expectancy of six months or less. Rather than seeking a cure, hospice care aims to make their remaining time with us as comfortable and as meaningful as possible. This may mean pain relief and nursing care, but also includes emotional support and help with everyday tasks.
What is the difference between Home Health and Personal Care assistance?
The difference between home health and personal home care assistance is the necessity for skilled services. Home health care requires skilled services that would come from a physician’s order. This includes things like registered nurses, physical therapy and occupational therapy.
Personal care assistance involves unskilled services that are typically paid for through private pay (not paid by insurance). These services include help around the house, transportation, bathing and some light meal preparation.
What insurance plans do you accept?

How much does your service cost?
Under all insurances that we accept, there is no out of pocket cost to the patient unless specified by the health plan.
