Frequently Asked Questions
Find answers to your questions about our services or in-home healthcare in general.
Yes. We take Medicare and Medicaid.
We accept all major insurance carriers, including Healthcare Marketplace plans, as long as those carriers provide long-term healthcare coverage.
We also take direct payment from individuals and families, supplementary assistance from community organizations and grants on behalf of our clients, and payments from government institutions such as Workman’s Compensation (Deptartment of Labor) and the Veterans Administration (VA).
The time it takes for us to set up a care plan and assign a caregiver depends on the current availability of our staff and each client’s own circumstances. Sometimes we can begin providing care in as little as 24 hours, but more often it may be at least one week before care services can begin.
All clients are matched with a dedicated Care Coordinator who is their main point of contact for all their care needs. A Care Coordinator will make sure the small details that matter most to you will be communicated and addressed. They are a resource to assist families navigating the course of remaining safely at home.
Your Focus Care Coordinator will take the time to get to know you and your situation and continually work through the process of care planning as your loved one’s needs change. Having one single point of contact that understands your needs, and is your personal advocate to facilitate meeting your goals, is why Focus is the best choice for your in-home care needs. Care Coordinators will help you connect to the best resources and referral partners to ensure your needs are met in the comfort of your home.
