The Cost of Home Care vs. Other Senior Care Options in Attleboro, MA

Home care services are for seniors who require assistance with personal care, while home health care services also provide limited skilled nursing services. Adult day care is the most affordable care option, although these services require traveling to a community center.

Financial Assistance for Home Care in Attleboro, MA

Given the high cost of in-home care, many people use one or more forms of financial assistance to cover the expenses. Below, we explain some of the most common sources of financial help for paying for in-home care. If none of these options are available to you, you can reach out to your Area Agency on Aging or Aging and Disability Resource Center to learn about local resources.

  • Long-Term Care Insurance: Long-term care insurance covers expenses related to senior care, including in-home care. Depending on the policy type, beneficiaries may receive a cash payment to use towards long-term care or reimbursement for qualifying long-term care expenses. Note that there are limitations- typically a maximum benefit of $150 per day- and exact coverage terms vary depending on the exact policy, so always check the details.
  • Medicare: Medicare does not cover in-home care because it is classified as custodial, or non-medical, care. However, some Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement plans, which offer expanded benefits, may cover in-home custodial care.
  • Medicaid: Medicaid coverage of in-home care varies between different states because it is not a federally mandated benefit. Currently, all states cover some in-home care either through their standard Medicaid or a waiver program. The specific coverage rules are set individually by each state.
  • Veterans’ Benefits: The Aid and Attendance benefit is a monthly cash payment that beneficiaries can use to pay for senior care, including in-home care services. To qualify for A&A, Veterans must already receive the VA pension and meet several additional requirements, including needing assistance with the activities of daily living. Contact the Department of Veterans Affairs to learn more.
  • Reverse Mortgages: Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECMs) are federally insured loans that are available to homeowners age 62 and over. Reverse mortgages allow you to access a portion of your home’s equity in cash, tax free. Many seniors use reverse mortgages to finance their care expenses, including in-home care. Note that although there are no monthly payments due on reverse mortgage loans, borrowers do have to repay the loan once the last surviving homeowner passes away, moves, or sells the home.

Attleboro Home Care Resources

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Attleboro:

Low Income Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP)

Address: 100 Cambridge St., Suite 300, Boston, MA 02114
Phone: (617) 573-1100

WAP provides recommendations and no-cost work from licensed local contractors to improve and upgrade a home’s energy efficiency. Covered services include new insulation, windows and doors. To be eligible, seniors in Attleboro must own their home and meet income and asset limitations.

Home Modification Loan Program (HMLP)

Address: 600 Washington St., Boston, MA 02111

Attleboro seniors can get needed home improvements made at significant discounts through the Home Modification Loan Program (HMLP). HMLP offers 0% interest home improvement loans through a network of authorized local lenders. Seniors in the program must meet income and asset limitations, as well as reside in the state and be unable to obtain a traditional home improvement loan or home equity line of credit to make the repairs. Repair work must be authorized by the program, and services include any needed home upgrade for improved safety and accessibility.

Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)

Address: 100 Cambridge St., Suite 300, Boston, MA 02114
Phone: (617) 573-1100

Seniors who pay their own gas and electric bills in Attleboro can gain significant savings by signing up for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), which is sometimes called the Fuel Assistance Program in Massachusetts. Seniors enrolled in the program can save up to 30% on their monthly heating and cooling bills, as well as find help getting energy-efficient home appliances, weatherize their homes or prevent disconnections with one-time cash aid. Eligible seniors must meet residency, income and asset limitations to enroll in the program.

Family Caregiver Support Program

Address: One Ashburton Pl., Floor 5, Boston, MA 02108
Phone: (617) 727-7750

Seniors aged 55 and over in Attleboro can get in-home caregiver assistance through the Family Caregiver Support Program. This program provides recipient-directed funds to hire a caregiver to assist with daily activities and some chores outside of the home. The program also helps caregivers get training and respite care. Seniors raising grandchildren can also get assistance finding education, personal care and benefits they may be eligible for from a program worker.
