Are there options beyond home care?
Consumer Directions offers another option for seniors who want to stay living at home when there is a circle of trusted family members, friends, and neighbors able to help out as paid caregivers.
Consumer Directions provides a carefree, cost-effective option for those wanting to hire and direct any extra supports needed, such as housekeeping, laundry, companionship, lawn care, snow removal, meal prep, grocery shopping, personal grooming, running errands, or any other assistance needed to stay living “well” at home.
In surveys conducted for AARP, more than three-fourths (78 percent) of people age 50 and older would prefer to manage their own home care services rather than receive services managed by an agency.
Let Consumer Directions help manage your own customized supports, rather than hiring an agency. We help you stretch your out-of-pocket dollars further by hiring trusted friends or family members to help with the extra needs in your home to better support wishes to stay living at home.
You will pay for the individuals that you hire, but we will do the bookkeeping, carry the insurance, and write the paychecks. If you hold a Long Term Care Insurance Policy we are also able to bill that policy for the services provided.
Reclaim the power of choice and help ensure that you get quality care under your direction, while we provide ongoing documentation of qualifying expenses for a Medical Assistance determination and look back period or for any tax credits that may apply to your individual situation.
