Medicare and home care

By Terry Savage on August 19, 2023 | Insurance & Annuities

I am a caregiver for my brother who has Parkinson. Does Medicare pay for any home health care if I get someone from a service to help me? Or is their any compensation for me to pay someone to help me. Thanks in advance

Immediately contact your state Department on Aging. Yes, there are resources — but you must ask. They are not typically provided by Medicare, unless after a 3 night stay in a hospital, and the need is for “skilled” nursing care. However, there are many other state resources that might help you.
