Are there any insurance programs that help caregivers who are not spouses with income, during
their time spent full-time caregiving?
A long-term care insurance policy with a “cash” benefit allows the insured/person on claim to use
the “cash” however they see fit. They can use the cash to help pay for an “informal” caregiver
(usually a family member or friend). A reimbursement long-term care insurance policy will
provide for payment to “professional” caregivers.

Do you have a selection of Medicare supplemental and programs for medical insurance for
caregivers too young for Medicare?
Caregivers, and I’m assuming they are in good health, will not be eligible for Medicare prior to
age 65. There are individual health insurance policies available on the market. Yes, I can provide.

Do you offer a product that helps keep people in their own homes, with live-in care options and
respite for family caregivers, so people who are now doing the caregiving, can make long-term  
plans for when they need full-time care?
You have just described a tax-qualified long-term care insurance policy.
Yes, I represent several companies and plans.

I am so excited to spread the news about our
flourishing new company. We have been in business
since 2005 and we are sharing the news about the
great benefits of Home Care and how we help seniors
stay INDEPENDENT in their homes for as long as they
can. We have so many great services available,
ranging from skilled nursing to psychiatric nursing and
from physical therapy to speech therapy to home
health aides. We are Medicare and Medicaid certified
and we want to educate everyone on available
services. A Better Way Home Care is committed to
seniors and their families with a selfless passion for
excellence and compassion in patient care and
education. We feel home is the best healing

Trinity Hospice is a community-based organization that affirms the belief that it is important to
make every life as meaningful as possible, from the first days of life-limiting illness to the last.
We focus on quality of life for our patients and their families which reflect a living expression of
love, warmth and compassion.
Hospice Care is provided primarily in the home, nursing home, or in an assisted living facility. The
Hospice Team assists family members in caring for their loved one in the comfortable and familiar
surroundings of their own home whenever possible. Occasionally, short inpatient stays may
become necessary for symptom management or during a medical crisis. Trinity Hospice is
contracted with local skilled nursing facilities to provide that special care when needed.
Trinity Hospice not only focuses on the special needs of the patient, but also provides support to
the families. Our Hospice team consists of Medical Director, Hospice Nurse, Home Health Aide,
Social Worker, Chaplain, Bereavement Coordinator, Volunteers, Music Therapist and a Massage
Therapist, all medical professionals. Trinity Hospice strives to meet the physical, emotional,
social, and spiritual needs of both the family and the patient.
Trinity Hospice recognizes that everyone is a unique individual. With the expert guidance and
counseling of our Hospice Team, patients and families can make their own decisions about what
is important to them. Trinity Hospice respects the decisions of the family and helps to create an
atmosphere of understanding and acceptance.
