Medicaid Benefits and At-Home Care

When it comes time for a child or parent to begin making plans for the beloved but aging senior in their life, the myriad of choices, paths, options and steps to take can seem endless and overwhelming–so much so that many dejectedly assume that nursing home care is the only option. But this isn’t always true! While some healthcare needs will eventually require the long-term care that a nursing home can provide, for others the goal is to stay in the comfort of their own home as long as possible. Fortunately, it IS possible to receive care at home and obtain Medicaid benefits. Medicaid application for a nursing home and for home-based care are somewhat different processes, but we regularly handle both at our Firm. In fact, home-based care is slowly becoming more popular with our clients as a means of staying in their comfort zone for as long as possible.

With this in mind, the Farr Law Firm is excited to announce a new relationship with American Care Partners @ Home Inc., a locally owned and operated at-home care agency based in Falls Church and serving the Northern Virginia area. This group offers a wide array of in-home care services, from a few hours of care a day to 24-hour round-the-clock supervision; from something as basic as simple companionship to assistance with household chores and errands. American Care Partners is unique in that their staff of physicians will conduct house calls to their patients right in their own homes, at no additional charge–“the 1940’s are back!” is what they say! And best of all, America Care Partners @Home Inc. are Medicaid approved and we look forward to working with them to attain the best possible care for our clients under Medicaid.

Another home-care company that we often recommend is HomeWell Senior Care, a nationwide organization with a very successful branch here in Virginia. HomeWell was founded by a caregiver in 1996 and focuses on “maintaining independence with quality home care for seniors.”

We at the Farr Law Firm enjoy working with these companies because they have a complete understanding of the Medicaid billing process, which makes things run smoothly. We strive to make the process of finding the best possible care for your loved one as stress-free and streamlined as possible for you and your family, and American Care Partners @ Home Inc., and HomeWell Senior Care are our integral partners in achieving that goal. If you have a parent or spouse in need of home-care, please contact the Farr Law Firm at or by calling 1-703-691-1888 for your complimentary initial consultation. We can help you determine your financial options for long-term care and create the best possible care plan for your loved one.
