In brief: Home Health Care

House chores r not covered.
Home health care is not covered by insurances unless pt. Came just out of the hospital, and usually has a limited number of days. With the breakup of the family ( families living far from another), families with less children, and women working, no one can take care of sick elderly. Then... Need an assisted living facility or nursing home or home help paid by pt
