When deciding the best type of care for you or a loved one, we understand that each care option comes with its own features and benefits. Home care costs, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and adult day services vary from state to state and city to city and also by the amount and type of care that is needed.

Considerations of the cost of long-term care should factor in the different types of and settings for care:

  • Home care offers personalized, one-to-one social, physical, and cognitive support care and assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s).

  • Nursing homes offer private rooms and semi-private rooms, each at different costs with additional charges for various services, including meals.

  • Assisted living facilities are a community-like setting for people who can no longer live independently without help.

  • Adult day services are drop-in centers typically open on weekdays during daytime hours.

Homewatch CareGiversof Garland will work with each client, their family, and when applicable other care providers to tailor a home care solution that meets the client’s needs and the families’ budget. In the past, we have partnered with assisted living communities to provide care for residents of these communities. In one instance, we met with members of the staff and the family to provide care for a client returning from a brief stay at a hospital. To the client, we provided 24 hour care for a period of approximately 10 days, followed by 8 hour per day care for two weeks and then 4 hour per day care for another two weeks. To the family and staff, we provided comfort knowing their loved one and cherished member of their community was getting personalized cost effective care during a vulnerable period.

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 if there are additional expenses such as meals and utilities. When evaluating care options, be sure to consider the level of independence and the personality of the person receiving care.

In order to provide a better estimate of the costs of the care needed, we would need to get to know you and your loved ones. Contact us and we will help you assess the costs of long-term care.
