Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
We needed care for a few hours a day on very short notice. Irene from Homewatch CareGivers met with us that same evening and arranged the care for the hours needed. The 2 caregivers that were assigned to us were wonderful. They quickly understood the needs, were very pleasant, and performed duties beyond what was expected. The prices were in line with other services. We will definitely contact them again should the need arise.

Looking for the right care for your aging loved ones can be very difficult and overwhelming. The most natural question is “How much does private duty home care cost?”
The majority of our clients receive a few hours of care per day, a few days per week when needed. A flexible solution that provides care only when our clients need it helps keep home care services affordable; often even more affordable than a private facility.
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.
