Does Medicare Pay for In-Home Care in the Cheney Area?
Medicare typically doesn't pay for housekeeping or personal care when that’s the only need of an elderly person. If you also have medical needs, like recovering from surgery or illness, Medicare may cover a short-term caregiver to help out with your health and other tasks around the home while patients heal on their own. Most providers offer hourly rates with price breaks for full days, overnights, etc… These home care agencies in Cheney are private pay, meaning the client pays out of pocket.
Hospice is also a type of care administered in homes. It is physician-ordered for end-of-life patients. Hospice is 100% covered by Medicare, but the extra support from regular caregivers during the day for hospice support is typically private pay.

The History of Cheney, Washington
The City of Cheney is located in Spokane County and is home to 10,590 residents, according to the 2010 Census. Cheney is proud of its small town nature, which is enhanced by the diverse influence of Eastern Washington University, a public regional university with over 10,000 full-time students. The Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League have held the majority of their summer training camps at EWU, from 1976–1985, and again from 1997 through the 2006 training camp.
Cheney developed into the city known today because of its strong ties to education, trail riding, and agriculture. This provided a strong economic base for the community and was the result of a much larger event that took place in the United States. In 1858, the last Native American defense occurred in Eastern Washington. Because isolated Eastern Washington was an area of this Native American unrest during the early part of the territorial period, it was not until the late 1860s and early 1870s that settlers made homes in the area. In the latter part of that decade, settlers attracted by plentiful water and timber and the promise of a railway line made their homes near a group of springs bubbling through a willow copse from the bank where the Burlington Northern depot now stands.
