Arvada Applewood, Denver, Golden and Wheat Ridge

Many families use home care Arvada's services to keep loved ones safe and comfortable in their own homes. While nursing facilities range from $4500-$9000 per month, our base rates start at $22 to $24 per hour, or as little as $60 per visit. In more difficult cases involving transfers, multiple shifts in a day, behavioral issues, long distances and or short shifts can vary in price from 25$ to 32$ per hour.

In some situations we find out our care is needed throughout a single family and their small community. A family in Golden, CO initially contacted us to care for their aunt—a 94-year old community leader who needed assistance with showering, dressing, etc. In addition, this family knew their 89-year old neighbor also could benefit from help. While she still enjoyed square dancing, we stepped in to assist with meal preparation and other tasks around the home so she could have a supported independence. Next, the mother of the adult daughter who contacted Homewatch CareGivers in the first place became ill and entered hospice. We were able to once again support the individual and the family with our caregiving services. 

Considerations of the home care 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 home care 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 do serve customers with Medicad Home Care Based Services.

We’d like to get to know you better so we can provide more specific costs for the care you need. Call homewatch CareGivers today to assess any of these options.
