Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
I am working with Homewatch Caregivers and I can't express how thankful and lucky I was to find them. My mother was recently diagnosed with Early Onset Dementia in 2011 and this has been a rollar coaster of emotions, stress and heartache for the entire family, in particular my father who is her primary caretaker. Homewatch Caregivers has been my father's refuge as they have been able to provide top-notch quality care for my mother. They are a pleasure to work with and are highly professional.

Everyone wants to remain in their own home in Westbury and Nassau County as long as they safely can be. After all, there is no place like home. The cost of home care is going to vary depending on where you are on your journey of needing care. Having care at home allows for a level of personalized care in an environment that you’re comfortable in, whether your need is for housekeeping tasks, meal preparation, or just keeping you or a loved one safe and comfortable. We can do this in an environment that is right for you. Know that home care can be incremental and it doesn’t have to be full-time live-in help. Home care is a highly adaptable option that can start as an hourly service on a weekly basis and then adapt along your journey. As a fiscal intermediary
of New York's Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP), we can
support qualified Medicaid care recipients who select a family member or friend
to be their caregiver.
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.
