Most people will prefer in-home care over nursing home care not only because it is generally much less expensive, but also its more desirable to remain in the comfort, freedom, and familiarity of one’s own home. The following are some methods in which our clients pay for services:
Many of our clients pay for home care services privately. We accept all major credit cards or ACH debit. We bill weekly for services.
Some of our clients will do a “spend down” of their personal savings until they qualify for a Medicaid-funded program to help them “age-in-place” in the comfort of their homes. Assisted Living Services, Inc. has been a credentialled provider with the Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders (CHCPE) for over two decades which can be helpful in making this transition seamless. Some of the more widely used programs under CHCPE include:

Did you know…you can be paid for caring for a loved one? Learn more about the Adult Family Living program that is an option for seniors who need on-going care at home. This program is available through the CT Homecare Program for Elders for those who qualify.
There are four different levels of care that depend on the complexity of care needed. When a referral is made to Social Services, a professional will come to your home for an assessment and help determine eligibility and care level.
The Adult Family Living Caregiver receives a non-taxable stipend based upon the approved level of care. We pay a tax-free stipend of up to $563.50 per week / $29,302 per year.

A program entitled Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefit and Housebound allowance may be available to veterans and / or spouses that qualify. We recommend you obtain the services of an elder law attorney to assist with the application process.

Long Term Care Insurance refers to a host of services and care that are not generally covered by regular health insurance. If you have Long Term Care Insurance you may be eligible for benefits if you cannot perform certain “activities of daily living,” or suffer from dementia or other cognitive impairment. Although our services are generally approved by most LTC plans, we are not able to guarantee the extent to which our services will be covered under any insurance plan.
