Alzheimer's Disease

If you’re 65 or older and aren’t sure if you can afford visiting nurse or rehabilitation services in your home, you may have options. Medicare will pay for short-term, intermittent skilled care from a certified home care agency, such as Atlantic Home Care. To qualify, you must have a physician order, be home-bound and have a condition requiring the skills of a nurse, physical therapist, occupational therapist or speech therapist. Medicare may also cover medical social work services, which can help you obtain community resources, a nutritionist or certified home health aide. Atlantic Home Care will verify your insurance coverage for you and will make the referral process as easy as possible. Call us at 973-379-8472 today.
