How much does Home Care cost? A simple question with a complex answer. You might ask, “Why so complex?” The cost of home care depends on the type of home care you find. First let’s look at working with a full-service Home Care company. Full service Home Care is a total employer of the caregiver. For a set bill rate you will receive a caregiver who will meet the needs of the care recipient. When your caregiver is fully employed by a home care company you needn’t worry about a thing. Your caregiver’s taxes are paid, and the caregiver is covered by liability, bonding and workman’s compensation insurance. You will never have to worry about owing the government anything for having the caregiver in your home and your home is protected from any form of liability. The cost for this care is $17 – $20 per hour.
What is Home Care?
Home Care is just what it sounds. Care for someone in their home. Often individuals of advanced age find it difficult to do certain activities that they have successfully done all of their lives. At some point all people of advanced age will become deficient in Activities of Daily Living, which are defined through the health care system to include: Bathing, Dressing, Toileting, Eating, Transferring and Continence. Not so long ago elderly people found themselves in convalescent or nursing homes at a point in their lives. Times have changed and great care can be delivered in your own home. People feel more comfortable and secure in their own homes and with a little caregiver assistance we can help monitor that they stay safe and healthy.

Home Care for the holidays.
More than any other time of year, the holidays bring families together. In my business we see so many sons and daughters coming back to their childhood homes at Christmas, and find their parents in desperate need of assistance.
