Portland is a wonderful place to
be, good food and good people. You see the “Keep Portland Weird” bumper
stickers around town. Well, some may call it weird, but we like it that way and
we call it home. We know that as you look for care in our area you are looking
for a quality experience. Cost of home care is a big part of the consideration
you have to make for yourself or for your loved one that needs the care. Let us
come to your home and provide a free in-home evaluation so that we can help you
better understand what the costs will be. We are happy to share our care
knowledge, and give you direction to the options that will best meet you needs.
After all, in Portland it’s all about the community!
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.
