Chapel Hill Serving Durham, Orange, and Chatham Counties

We would like to share with you who we are and therefore what you are paying for when you hire one of our caregivers in Chapel Hill. As of May 2015 we employ over 180 active caregivers that are supervised by seven Registered Nurses. Each caregiver has a different personality and set of skills but what they all have in common is compassion and a strong desire to make our clients' lives as safe and comfortable as humanly possible.  We pride ourselves in paying special attention to the process of matching our clients with the right caregiver, which allows us to achieve over 96% client satisfaction rate. We personalize care for each client, regardless of whether the client lives at home or in a community. We work well with assisted living communities, rehabilitation centers, adult day cares and independent living communities to make sure that our clients receive well balanced care wherever they call home. All caregivers participate in our monthly training programs designed and administered by our nurses. On average each employee receives at least 30 to 60 hours of in-service and on-the-job trainings per year to make sure they are well equipped with the latest tools and knowledge to provide the highest quality home care available in our 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.
