MO HealthNet Clients
In-home service care includes non-medical care, personal care, or household chores. These services may include help in the home with the tasks of daily living, such as meal preparation, medication reminders, laundry, light housekeeping, errands, shopping, and companionship. Services may also include bathing, dressing, transferring, using the toilet, eating, and walking, which can reflect an individual’s capacity for self-care.
An employee of the State of Missouri will work with the individual to create a personal care plan according to their needs. They will then forward that information to Southern Care and Comfort to begin carrying out the needed assistance.
Southern Care & Comfort In Home Agency & Veteran Services provides services for both Veterans, and in some cases, the surviving spouse of a Veteran.
A Veteran who has a qualifying need may request in-home services through their Primary Care Physician with the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Physician can order Personal Care Assistance, Nurse Visits, Home Care Assistance, and Respite Services (which allow relief for the family.) Financial or personal assets do not affect eligibility.
A second option can assist with a Veteran or a surviving spouse. This program does have requirement guidelines regarding dates of service and monetary/asset stipulations.
Private Pay/Private Insurance Clients
Many people own a Long-Term Care or Short-Term Care Insurance Policy, which can be utilized by an individual in the comfort of their own home without causing them to be relocated to a Skilled Nursing or Rehabilitation Facility. Southern Care & Comfort In Home Agency & Veteran Services can work directly with insurance carriers to bill them for services. Others may choose to privately pay for the assistance they need.
Both of these funding sources allow the individual to work with our company to personalize a care plan and schedule which fits their needs.
