Comfort of Home Healthcare is here to assist you with your in home healthcare needs by providing excellent, professionally trained staff for your family's specific needs.

In Home Care Services

Comfort of Home Healthcare provides quality in home care services; Private Duty, Medicaid, VA, Individual Long Term Care Insurance Policies.

 

In Home care is different than services that Home Health and/or Hospice (Medicare) covers. Medicare covers skilled nursing ONLY. Think of this as task oriented, where a nurse comes out and completes a task (regulating medications, wound care, etc,) but then leaves. 

 

That is where Comfort of Home Healthcare can be so beneficial to you and your family. With Comfort of Home Healthcare services, you can expect a caregiver to come out for a duration of time (4 hours plus) and help with a vast array of different needs that skilled nursing can not. 

 

Comfort of Home Healthcare's most basic services are called ADL's or Activities of Daily Living. Some examples of what this service provides are as follows: 

 

  • Homemaker Chore Services; such as housekeeping and laundry.

  • Meal Preparation

  • Shopping for groceries, or transportation to doctors appointments

 

Along with ADL's, our caregivers are also trained to provide Basic and Advanced Personal Care. Including but not limited to:

 

  • Bathing Assistance

  • Dressing

  • Grooming

  • Hygiene Assistance

  • Toileting

  • Catheter Care/Ostomy Care

  • Medication Set Up

  • Transfer Assistance

  • Assistive Devise Assistance

  • Feeding Tube Assistance

 

Medicaid Services

In addition to Comfort of Home Healthcare's In Home Care services, we also have two contracts with the State of Missouri to provide similar services to people with disabilities and other Medicaid recipients. 

 

Comfort of Home Healthcare provides services for people with disabilities though the State of Missouri's, Department of Mental Health (DMH), Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) and Bureau of Special Healthcare Needs. These services are initiated through that respected department but includes services such as: (but not limited to)

 

  • Home and Community Based Services; (DHSS) a Medicaid program that helps with Activities of Daily Living and Personal Care. 

  • Individual Supported Living or ISL; residential placement in a non institutional setting.

  • Residential Supported Living; supporting individuals with disabilities in their homes and in the community. 

  • Supported Employment

  • Respite Care; short term or temporary care of a few hours or weeks to provide relief or respite, to the regular caregiver, usually a family member.

 

These Medicaid programs and waivers will get very confusing to someone who is looking for care. Please do not hesitate to call us and we can point you in the right direction on where to initiate these services.
