Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
Thank you so much for all the wonderful care you gave Mom. I appreciate both your compassion and your professionalism. You were a wonderful help to her (and me) in her final days. Deepest thanks.

Understanding our clients’ needs and concerns is our most important responsibility so to further help with the costs associated with home care, we do not require an upfront deposit. Our agency tries to make care as affordable as possible. We price our home care services based on volume. The more hours booked, the lower the costs to our clients. We know that our clients care needs can change and with time may require more help so with this built in discount pricing we help provide the best care for the best value. Our commitment to value shows in the skilled care services our Registered Nurses (RN’s) provide. In addition, they are here to support the role of our caregivers and provide specific care services to our clients as needed. They are a great value to our clients because for the most part, the clients are never charged for the oversight our RN’s provide. They perform quality assurance visits every 60 days to review the plan of care, the caregiver’s performance and get an update on our clients.Clients get to know our nursing staff and RN’s can provide skilled nursing care home visits at very reasonable costs.We also have an RN who is on-call, 24/7, at the disposal of our caregivers and clients to help triage situations and answer any questions or concerns immediately, at no charge.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.
