Custodial Care

Non-medical care given to individuals who are unable to perform activities of daily living. Examples of custodial care include helping a person dress herself, cook or feed herself, and use the bathroom. Custodial care at home is available through some private insurance plans. That is, the insurance may pay for a nurse to come to a disabled person's house and help with the activities of daily living. Medicare may also pay for custodial care but generally only within a nursing home. See also: Long-Term Care Insurance.
