Home Health is paid 100% by Traditional Medicare. Any Medicare Advantage plans or Private insurance would need to be checked for coverage.
Personal Care Services (PAS) allow residents to create their own plan of care that best meets their needs. PAS can assist with a range of difference services that allow residents and family to have a sense of peace to know Senior Allegiance is providing care.
PAS Services can include:
- Bathing assistance
- Escorts to meals or activities
- Medication reminders / management
- Vital sign checks (including blood sugar checks)
- Dressing assistance
- Incontinence check

PAS is not covered by Medicare or Medicare Advantage insurance plans. PAS is private pay and is the responsibility of the resident/family. Long-Term Care Insurance can sometimes pay for these services. In addition, qualifying Veterans may qualify for VA & Attendance Benefits of up to $2,050/month that pays for such services. If you’d like to learn more about VA Benefits, please contact PAS Supervisor Cindy Harrell at (281)881-7332.
