Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
We thank you for sending Susan to us! It's hard to believe she's been part of our family for two years. She's cheerful, fun and very attentive with our mother; reads to her, listens to music with her, watches mom's DVDs as well as much more. We love her very much.

Do you have questions about the cost of home care in Columbia? Maybe this example can show how we’ve helped others with similar questions. We have a client who recently signed up for care whose mom was moving from out of state where she was receiving Medicaid waiver benefits. The family wanted to make sure she would still receive her benefits in our state. We were able to guide and educate them about local grants available to community members and directed them to the local Office of Aging for Medicaid assistance needs. Because of their concern with the cost of home care, we were able to connect them with a grant that would help alleviate some of the home care costs while the client waited for her Medicaid Waiver benefits to begin in our state.
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.
