Financial Assistance for Home Care in Broadview Heights, OH

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.

Free & Low-Cost Home Care Resources in Broadview Heights, OH

Seniors in Broadview Heights have access to many free and low-cost resources designed to support them in their later years. These examples of what’s available show how seniors can get help meeting utility costs, reducing energy consumption, sourcing fresh meals and minimizing their tax burden.

ResourceContactService
Meals on Wheels(440) 526-2499This program, managed by the City of Broadview Heights, provides nutritionally balanced and freshly prepared hot and chilled meals for seniors unable to make their own and residents recuperating from surgery and serious illness. Two meals are delivered every day on weekdays between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m., one for that day's lunch and the other to be refrigerated for the evening's meal. The first two weeks cost $60 per person, reduced to $30 for each subsequent week. The volunteer drivers also make wellness checks on seniors during deliveries.
Weatherization Assistance Program(800) 282-0880The State of Ohio's weatherization assistance program helps residents on low incomes reduce their energy costs while also making their homes more comfortable living spaces. To get support, the applicant must be a state resident, own or rent the home and have an income and assets that fall within guidelines. For successful applicants, the program can cover the cost of work recommended in the energy audit. These may include installing attic and wall insulation, repairing or replacing damaged windows and doors and fixing broken furnaces and boilers.
Homestead Exemption(216) 443-7050Cuyahoga County residents aged 65 and older and veterans with 100% disability related to their military service may be entitled to tax savings on their homes. To qualify, they must own and occupy the home in Cuyahoga County — it must be the primary residence — and have incomes that fall within the program's guidelines.
Home Energy Assistance Program(800) 282-0880The federally funded Home Energy Assistance Program is managed by the Ohio Development Services Agency. Ohioans whose energy suppliers are threatening to disconnect their services due to unpaid bills can apply to the program, which can make a one-off payment directly to the supplier to cover the charge. The amount the program can provide is dependent on the number of persons in the household and their location. Seniors who have longer-term payment issues may want to inquire into a Percentage of Income Payment Plan, which can standardize payments over an extended period, making energy costs easier to budget.
