Silver Spring Rockville, Potomac, and Montgomery County

Clients are often concerned with the cost of home care in Silver Spring because care can become expensive. We understand this reality, so, for example, our agency is willing to take on an assignment of benefits directly from a client’s Long Term Care insurance policy so they are not out of pocket.  We even file the claims, helping to ease some of the burden of paying for home care as they wait for reimbursement from the insurance company.

We know that bringing someone new into your home is a very big decision so we make sure we fully vet our caregiving staff. In addition, we also personally introduce our caregiving staff to the client and family prior to the start of care. On average, we have around 100 active caregivers with a roster of over 500 caregivers that we could reach out to for assistance.  Their credentials range from certified nursing assistance (CNA’s), geriatric nursing assistants (GNA’s), Medication Technicians (MT’s) and companions to several Nurses on staff.

Considerations of the costs of long-term care should factor in many elements.

Home care offers personalized, one-to-one social, physical, and cognitive support care and assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s), but home upkeep costs need to be included. Caregivers are trained and supervised by the company.

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.

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.
