People With Medicare
Medicare covers important types of services at home to help with Alzheimer’s. These are called skilled rehabilitation therapies. These services can help you keep or improve your ability to function. They are covered as a part of Medicare’s home health care benefit. They include:
Physical therapy to help you move, walk, or get around your home, and
Speech-language therapy services to help you talk or swallow, and
Occupational therapy to help you do your daily activities.
Only trained professionals can give you these services. You only qualify if you need trained professionals to give you this kind of treatment safely and effectively.
