Home care is one long-term care option for people who need assistance with their activities of daily living as a result an injury, illness, or age. Each long-term care option in Boise has various costs, and we are experts in the cost of home care. One way that we look at it is that once a person is paying for more than eight hours of home care, they are paying about the same as they would to be in an assisted living facility. It really comes down to what you or your loved one wants: does your Mom want to stay in her home?
In some instances, there might be an overlap of care options. We had a client who was living with severe dementia in an independent living facility with his wife. The staff said he could not remain there without 24-hour care, and that’s when they called us.

Research has provided the following general estimates of costs for long-term care:

Nursing homes (w/ a private room)

Hospital-like setting providing a mix of medical services, equipment and skilled care for people having extensive personal care needs. Costs range from $120/day to $500/day.

Assisted Living Facilities

Community-like setting for those who can't live independently but don't require nursing care. Cost ranges from $1,300/mo. to $7,000/mo.

Adult Day Services

Drop-in centers that provide activities and meals in a group setting during daytime hours. assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s). Pricing is $10/hour to $34/hour.

Home Care

Personalized, one-to-one care delivered in the home to anyone in need of social support and/or assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s). Pricing is $10/hour to $34/hour.

With each care option, one must factor in a caregiver to client ratio, additional expenses such as meals, utilities, residential upkeep, and more. The cost of home care varies based on the breadth of services provided and number of hours required.
