Custodial care is a specific type of care that you may need as you get older or if you develop a physical or a mental condition. It can make a big impact on your financial situation if your care is classified as custodial care, because this classification will affect what type of insurance coverage is – and is not – available to you.

What is Custodial Care?
Custodial care is defined by Medicare as “non-skilled personal care, like help with activities of daily living like bathing, dressing, eating, getting into or out of a bed or chair, moving around, and using the bathroom.” If you need help to do basic “medical” tasks, such as putting in eyedrops, which most people tend to do on their own, this kind of care is also considered by Medicare to be custodial care.
