Boulder Longmont, Lafayette and Louisville

Homewatch CareGivers of Boulder County employs about seventy-five compassionate and capable caregivers from a variety of backgrounds. As a non-medical agency, we do not require CNA or other professional licenses, but many of our employees happen to be in school for a medical field or have experience of that nature. We have young people, like Eleanor, who manages her flexible caregiving schedule to accommodate her college courses and church commitments. Philip, a dad in his late 30’s, helps his clients on weekends and during the day while his kids are in school. Julie, a retired nurse, enjoys continuing to help people part-time between visits from her grandkids.

All of our caregivers are trained both by our experienced management staff and through our unique Homewatch CareGivers University platform, exceeding the requirements of our state licensure. Our competitive cost of home care includes this caregiver training, as well as background checks, Liability and Workers’ Comp insurance, and employee benefits such as medical and dental. We value our caregivers and strive to ensure that they are supported and satisfied in their jobs—happy caregivers provide the very best care!

Considerations of in-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 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.
