The Society of Certified Senior Advisors has released an updated version of the BASICS brochure. BASICS answers some of the most often-asked questions about Social Security, Medicare, Medicare Supplements, Medicaid, senior housing, in-home care and long-term care insurance. This informative and easy-to-read, 38-page booklet was inspired by our Certified Senior Advisors (CSAs), who have taken the time to learn about the complexity of aging and how to help seniors find the tools to navigate that journey.
Excerpt from BASICS:
“Oftentimes decisions must be made quickly and sooner than expected because of an accident or an unexpected illness. Short or long-term in-home care by a family member or friend may be required and means a change in how individuals and families function in their daily lives. The good news is that if this happens, you aren’t alone.”
The BASICS guide will answer all your latest questions on in-home care, including:
- What is in-home care?
- How does home care differ from home health care?
- Does Medicare pay for home health care or home care?
- What doesn't Medicare cover for home care?
- How much does home care cost?
- and much more
This guide is available electronically or in printed format for Certified Senior Advisors only. CSAs can use this to pass along to their senior clients. This critical information will not only help them to age well but will genuinely make a difference in their lives. To view a sample of this full color brochure, please visit www.csa.us/store.

SCSA’s mission is to educate professionals to work more
effectively with their senior clients. For those who work with seniors, this means understanding the key health, social and financial factors that are important to seniors—and how these factors work together. CSAs are able to integrate this into their professional practices, no matter
what field they’re in. They’ve learned how incredibly gratifying it is to help seniors achieve their goals, and the seniors they’ve worked with have learned how important it is to work with someone who truly understands their age-related circumstances.
