“I wanted to bring my father home, but after two failed attempts to keep him safe and comfortable at home, I was unsure of what to do…. He was under Hospice care and they recommended that I call Homewatch... It is now just about nine months later and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Homewatch... The best testament that I can give to the level of care, love and compassion that he has received, is that hospice has dismissed him!! I don't think I could ask for anything more!!”

When it comes to the cost of In home care cost in Bethlehem and the Lehigh Valley area, we have found
that most families are looking for the same things. They’re looking to keep
their loved one in a situation where they can have the most meaningful, high
quality life possible considering their personal abilities, ideally without
needing to relocate and within their budget. Listed below are various long-term
care options along with a general idea of the costs associated with each option,
including the cost of home care.No one solution works for every family, and sometimes the
solution is actually a combination of services. For example using home care to
assist someone before and after their visit to adult day care can be an
affordable option when someone with dementia needs assistance while their
family is at work. Alternatively, home care assistance can supplement the care provided
in an assisted living residence so an individual can stay safely in the assisted
living and not need to move to a nursing facility.At Homewatch CareGivers of the Lehigh Valley not only do we
provide exceptional Home Care we pride ourselves in being excellent at
collaborating with other Long-Term Care providers.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.
