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:
- Wounds care for pressure sores or a surgical wound
- Patient and caregiver education
- Intravenous or nutrition therapy
- Skilled Staff monitoring serious illness and unstable health status
The goal of home health care is to treat an illness or injury. Home health care can help you recover, regain your independence, and become as self-sufficient as possible.
As a home health agency, we act as liaison between patient and doctor, saving you precious time from getting authorization for service.
What is Personal Home Care Assistance?
Personal care services provide seniors and disabled individuals with 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 Health 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 can be paid by insurance as well as private pay. These services include help around the house, transportation, bathing, and some light meal preparation.
Will my insurance cover your services?
Each location accepts different insurance providers, please refer to the location page of that location to determine what insurance is accepted.
How much are your services?
Under all insurances that we accept, there is no out-of-pocket cost to the patient unless specified by the health plan.
