My aunt was recently discharged from the hospital and received homecare for a few days. It really helped her and I’d like to arrange more. Would she qualify and who do I call?
Whether your aunt qualifies for government-funded homecare depends on where she lives. The best way to find out is to ask the agency that helped when she first came home. If they are no longer helping your aunt, it may be that she no longer qualifies. However, she will still be able to get some assistance from a homecare agency in her community. Almost all agencies will do an initial needs assessment with your aunt and help to determine how much care she requires.
