How often are the visits / what is the visit frequency?

After you choose EverCare at Home to be your home care agency, a nurse will visit to conduct an assessment. An assessment is a physical examination which will include questions regarding your medical history and medications that you take. This usually takes one to two hours.
The goal of this assessment is to document your needs and make recommendations to the doctor regarding a specific plan of care developed for you.

After we visit you in your home, the nurse or therapist will consult with your doctor to establish a plan of care that meets your healthcare needs and works toward improved health outcomes.
Who pays for home care services?
It depends. Payor sources can be private pay, medicare or medicaid, or it can be your commercial insurance. We also provide charity care to those who qualify.
