Home care can include medical home care like in-home physical therapy or skilled nursing, or it can be non-medical like help with personal care.

Non-medical home care can aid with bathing, dressing, light housekeeping, and transportation. Non-medical home care can be paid for privately, with eligible long-term care insurance policies, or with certain Medicaid waiver programs. 

Medicare and private health insurance may cover some of the cost for short-term medical home care. If, however, you need medical home care assistance on a more permanent basis, you may be required to pay privately or use an eligible long-term care insurance policy.
