Custodial Care is nonmedical assistance — either at home or in a nursing or assisted-living facility that is provided to clients by Homecare Staff. Staff provide assistance with the activities of daily life (such as bathing, eating, dressing, using the toilet) for someone who’s unable to fully perform those activities without help. Staff may also help with errands, shopping, meal set up and preparation, light housekeeping, laundry, and all other non-medical daily tasks that clients require assistance with. Custodial caregivers provide companionship and may escort clients on errands and with activities that might be difficult to complete alone. Normally custodial care is NOT covered by insurance. Some insurances such as long term care insurance providers will pay for some custodial care. However, even long term care policies require that clients are evaluated by a registered nurse and meets the qualifications of the program before payment can be met.
