How to Choose the Best Home Care Provider for Your Parents

Choosing the correct home care provider for your aging parents is a huge responsibility. This person will be looking after the needs of those who taught you to walk, talk, and care for yourself. To ensure your parents are well cared for in their golden years, consider the following as you seek out the perfect fit for a home care provider:1: Decide What Services Your Loved One RequiresAll home care is not identical. The amount of care your parents require determines the availability and cost of the services. If your parent only needs temporary care a few hours a day, you may need to employ a different provider than if they're recovering from surgery. Observe your parents needs before you commit to paying for a home care plan. Home care services can range from an aide coming into your parents home and sitting with them to providing medical services like ensuring that they take their daily medications. You may find this needs assessment worksheet from the National Caregiver Library helpful in assessing the level of care your loved one needs.The more intensive the services your parents need, the more money the service will cost. If Medicare doesn't cover your parents, you may end up footing the bill for the service. Make sure the services are within your budget before committing to a home care plan. 2: Do Your ResearchIt's important to have all the facts about a home care agency before you bring one into your parents home. A part of your research should include interviewing different agencies about what services they offer. You should streamline your search based on what services your parents require. Make sure to ask the agencies you connect with about what they offer or what services they claim as specialties.3: Get It Paid ForMedicare covers services for patients home care needs if the patient meets eligibility criteria. Patients eligible for home care coverage include those meeting the following criteria: Patients currently under the care of a doctorPatients whose doctor certifies that they're homeboundPatients in need of physical, speech, or occupational therapy who are under the care of a doctor, have a plan of care that's continually reviewed by a doctor, and require intermittent skilled nursing careCoverage is for services that are necessary and reasonable to treat an illness or injury, including such services as:Physical therapySkilled nursing careCertain durable medical equipmentMedical supplies for in-home careMedical social servicesInjectable osteoporosis drugs specifically for womenSpeech therapyMedicaid, meanwhile, varies by state, and each state may have multiple Medicaid programs.

Consider the above steps to ensure you make the best decision for your family so your parents are cared for during their golden years. Consider consulting with us if you need more information on securing home care.

New Year's Financial Resolutions

Time for New Years financial resolutionsIts that time of year when many of us promise ourselves well go to the gym more, or learn a new language, or take up a musical instrument, or any number of other worthy goals. But this year, when making New Years resolutions, why not also consider some financial ones?  Here are a few to consider: Dont let inflation derail your investment strategy. As you know, inflation was the big financial story of 2022, hitting a 40-year high. And while it may moderate somewhat this year, it will likely still be higher than what we experienced the past decade or so. Even so, its a good idea to try not to let todays inflation harm your investment strategy for the future. That happened last year: More than half of American workers either reduced their contributions to their 401(k)s and other retirement plans or stopped contributing completely during the third quarter of 2022, according to a survey by Allianz Life Insurance of North America. Of course, focusing on your cash flow needs today is certainly understandable, but are there other ways you can free up some money, such as possibly lowering your spending, so you can continue contributing to your retirement accounts? Its worth the effort because you could spend two or three decades as a retiree. Control your debts. Inflation can also be a factor in debt management. For example, your credit card debt could rise due to rising prices and variable credit card interest rate increases. By paying your bill each month, you can avoid the effects of rising interest rates. If you do carry a balance, you might be able to transfer it to a lower-rate card, depending on your credit score. And if youre carrying multiple credit cards, you might benefit by getting a fixed-rate debt consolidation loan. In any case, the lower your debt payments, the more you can invest for your long-term goals. Review your investment portfolio. At least once a year, you should review your investment portfolio to determine if its still appropriate for your goals, risk tolerance and time horizon. But be careful not to make changes just because you feel your recent performance is not what it should have been. When the financial markets are down, as was the case for most of 2022, even quality investments, such as stocks of companies with solid business fundamentals and strong prospects, can see declines in value. But if these investments are still suitable for your portfolio, you may want to keep them.   Prepare for the unexpected. If you encountered a large unexpected expense, such as the need for a major home repair, how would you pay for it? If you didnt have the money readily available, you might be forced to dip into your long-term investments or retirement accounts. To prevent this, you should build an emergency fund containing three to six months worth of living expenses or a years worth, if youre retired with the money kept in a low-risk, liquid account. These  resolutions can be useful so try to put them to work in 2023.This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.Chad Choate III, AAMSBradenton's Riverwalk828 3rd Ave WBradenton, FL 34205Edward Jones, Member SIPC
