Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between home care and home health?
Home care refers to assistance with activities of day-to-day living such as showering, meal preparation, personal hygiene etc, and are considered non-medical services. Home health on the other hand, includes tasks performed by medical personnel including, medication administration, physical therapy, wound care and other such services.
Can I use my Medicare or Insurance plan to pay for your service?
Medicare is still considered traditional insurance which means it only pays/covers medical care. Clover Senior Care provides only non-medical care which is not covered under medical insurance at this time.
Are your caregivers certified and trained?
Yes, Clover Caregivers are hired based on the following criteria: Three year minimum experience working in the home care field with youths and adults and a certification as an HHA, CNA or STNA, including CPR.
Is there an hourly minimum?
Yes, there is. We have discovered in serving our families that any individual needing less than 6 hours per week of care really doesn't need us and is quite independent. The minimum billable rate is 2 hours.
How can I pay for the care I receive?
Families can fulfill payments using checks, credit cards, ACH, Health Savings Account, Long Term Care policy, and income from Aid & Attendance (VA) and by VENMO.
What is your hourly rate for care?
