Carlsbad La Jolla, San Diego, Rancho Bernardo

Every new client relationship begins with doing an evaluation in Carlsbad. This way we can determine how we can best tailor our care to fit the client’s needs. One of the best things about home care is how flexible it can be for our clients. With over 65 caregivers on staff we pride ourselves on being able to work with any schedule and to make sure that each client has the right caregiver for them.

One instance of this would be one client, an 81-years old female, who was in need of assistance 3 days per week for 13 ½ hours per day. We were able to come up with a special 13 ½ hour rate that made sense for us and also helped to make the cost of home care work for her as well.

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.

Home care costs vary 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.
