Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
Homewatch Caregivers of the Triangle is a family business, and that is evident in their dealings with clients. From scheduling to billing, everything was done with a personal touch; there was always someone on call and reachable by phone 24/7, ready to handle any concern, no matter how small; the follow-through and follow-up have been excellent. Our family will always be grateful for the wonderful care my father received from Homewatch during a very difficult period in all of our lives.

When considering the cost of home care in Cary and Wake
County, one of the questions that often comes up is how will I pay for this
care? One of our clients was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when she was in
her 50’s. When it became impossible for her to live alone she hired us in 2004
to assist her with some of the activities of daily living for three hours in
the morning and three hours in the evening. As of May 2015 she still lives
alone at her home and we are still providing care for her. One particular fact
that we are very proud of is that we were able to have the same caregiver for
her from the day one! The fact that she has long-term care insurance has helped
her tremendously to pay for the care.
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.
