Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
We talked with Homewatch CareGivers of Freeland, and they sounded able and willing to do whatever Mom needed. For the next two years, starting with a few needs and gradually increasing, they became Mom's trusted helpers - and the boots on the ground for those of us who couldn't be there.

Freeland home care understands that the cost of home
care is an important consideration when you are researching long-term care
options. It might help for you to know more about who we are: we have an RN who brings over 30 years of experience to the agency. Gail does LTC
assessments, medication set ups, QA visits, caregiver training, and more. She is available to answer questions and advise us on care plans and client
care at any time. There are many benefits of having an RN who plays several roles on our staff. One of our clients uses a combination of long-term care options, including home care. We do respite care for a female client with Alzheimer’s. To off-set the cost of home care, her son has moved in with his mom. He
takes her to an adult day program during the week and family members care for
her while the son is at work. We are scheduled about once a month on
weekend days to give everyone a break and sometimes during the week if she is
not feeling well enough to go to the day program. Our client really loves
to listen to music at the day program so we play CD’s from her extensive
collection for her when we are in her home. Below we have highlighted some of the different
aspects to be aware of when you look at the different long-term care solutions
for your family.
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.
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.
