Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
From the initial assessment by both owners (impressive in itself), the staff not only performed what was requested, but noticed ways to be helpful -- changed a light bulb, picked up items around the house, took out trash, and did extra laundry. They did an excellent "read" of my personality and provided service to suit my needs. Truly, more than expected. Thank you!

The cost of home care can have an impact on the type of care available. The trained experts at Homewatch CareGivers of Santa Rosa will assess your specific needs and expectations.Having long-term care insurance can offset the costs associated with having care. In one situation, we partnered with an acute-care facility to provide round-the-clock care. The client’s Medicare paid for her stay in the acute care facility, while her long-term care insurance paid for our services.
Homewatch CareGivers of Santa Rosa’s client was a 74-year-old avid golfer and hiker with a broken pelvis. From the hospital, she was sent to an acute care facility, where she needed to lie on her back for 24 hours a day while her bones mended. We provided 24-hour care, where we ensured her safety, assisted with meals and provided care communication for her adult children who live out of the area. As she improved, our care changed to include caregivers reading to her and taking her outside to place her feet in the grass. For two months, we were able to provide human interaction and variety to her day, which helped in her healing and well-being.
Considerations of the costs of long-term care should factor in many elements.
With each care option, ask about caregiver to client ratio, how personalized services are for the individual, who is responsible for taxes, insurance and worker's compensation, and find out if there are additional expenses such as meals and utilities. Consider the level of independence for the person receiving each type of long-term care and how this matches with their personality.
The cost of using a home care company varies based on the breadth of services provided and number of hours required. Typically, hourly costs go down as number of hours increases, and fees go up when more skill is needed or desired.
We’d like to get to know you better so we can provide more specific costs for the care you need. Call us today to assess any of these options.
