As you investigate the different options available to you, you want to choose the type of care that fits into your care needs and fits into your financial picture. You are not alone; many people searching for care are apprehensive about the potential financial burden of paying for long-term care.
Here's something to consider: cost of care is always more expensive if medical care is required. But don't let that worry you, as you still may be able to have in-home care, even with occasional medical needs.
What will home care cost for you? It may be more affordable than you think.
The cost of non-medical home care varies depending on where you live and the amount of care you will need. The best way to budget for home care is to determine the number of hours you will need per week. Feel free to take our free online needs home care estimator to evaluate your needs and the number of hours you may need.
According to the “Cost of Care Survey - 2019,” an annual report by Genworth, in-home care can cost less than other options like adult day care, assisted living and skilled nursing. The cost for home care will vary depending on the type of care someone needs and where they are located in the US.
Obviously, home care is a much more desirable and affordable option. While being able to remain in your own home and get the undivided attention of a single caregiver makes in-home care the best option. Home care can minimize accidents and injuries that lead to hospital stays and visits to the doctor. As SYNERGY HomeCare caregivers help with activities of daily living, they promote healthier habits such as daily movement, social engagement, healthy eating habits and proper hygiene. With a caregiver by their side, potential accidents and falls will be minimized, and having a steady hand helps many seniors be more sure on their feet.
Our caregivers help keep track of prescriptions and can take your loved ones to and from Doctor appointments. Medication reminders given by a SYNERGY HomeCare caregiver can prevent our clients from forgetting to take their medication or overdosing, both of which can lead to more serious health concerns.
We provide services that improve the quality of our clients' lives and allows people to maintain their independence, in the home they love.
If you’re researching nursing homes and assisted care facilities, just remember this: with in-home care, your loved one has one-on-one care; they’re not sharing one caregiver with eight other patients. That said, if your loved one does not need medical care, just getting around help, in home care is the affordable option.
