The cost of home care in Thousand Oaks can be just one consideration when an individual is living with a chronic condition or degenerative disorder that requires ongoing care. Some of our clients use combined types of care to meet all of their needs. For example, we have a client, a 90-year old woman who is living with Alzheimer’s disease, who is still pretty social. She likes to play bingo so one of our caregivers provides transportation services or her to go to and from bingo night. There are times when she needs the caregiver to stay with her so she can play at the same pace as other people there, and this is part of our companionship services. Our care is person-directed, so that we know what’s valuable to each person and adjust our care to them.

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.
