Whether you’re a parent or have mentored and supervised others in your career, you’ve spent a significant part of your adult life looking after and caring for others. From preparing those you supervised for the unexpected to being sure your own kids put on a helmet or protective padding before heading out to the skatepark, your focus has always been to look out for others and make sure they were ready and informed for challenges or to cushion the blow if they get hurt while playing. Now it’s time to put that same preparation and care towards yourself.
Retirement is meant to be when you finally have the time and financial security to do all the things you were too busy to do while you were working. But are you prepared if the unexpected happens?
Whether it’s a sudden car accident or the recovery time from a scheduled knee surgery, there are times home healthcare is more than just a convenience. It’s an outright necessity. Whether you live alone or with your spouse, patients can exasperate their injury or recovery time by trying to (literally) get back on their feet and resume their normal activities too soon. There are chores and needs that professional help can assist with, including transportation to doctor’s appointments, making sure you take your medications at scheduled times, and preparing your meals.
Short-term care is important and can make a world of difference on the road to recovery. But it can also be very expensive. The problem of cost can be solved and cushioned with a Home Health Care policy. Short-term care policies can provide coverage for a period such as six months or one year. They generally cost less per premium than long-term policies and qualifying for the coverage is usually easier.
A Home Health Care policy can not only help make sure you are prepared for taking the recovery time as your doctor recommends, it can also cushion (or even shield you from) the blow of significant medical bills.
