Affordable In-Home Care Services
There continues to be an increasing demand for elderly and handicapped care, many believe having an in-home caregiver for a loved one is out of reach. At St. Francis Home Health Agency, we are dedicated to providing your loved one the assistance they need to remain in their comfortable home at an affordable price.
Nursing Home Cost vs. In-Home Caregivers
Many people choose a nursing home for their loved one believing that is the least expensive option. However, St. Francis Home Health Agency believes in providing your loved one affordable elderly home care services. Nursing home costs for a semi-private room in California you can expect to pay about $235 a day and for a private room, it increases to $285 a day. There can also be an additional cost for incontinence supplies, transportation to medical appointments, and other nutritional supplements as requested.
Nursing homes are expensive and because of the increase in demand for caregivers, the cost of a nursing home will continue to rise. An in-home caregiver can provide all the amenities for a nursing home but in the privacy of your own home.
In-Home Care Cost
Our certified nursing assistants can help your loved one with personal hygiene, light housework, meal preparation, and other services at an affordable $25 an hour. Genworth 2015 Cost of Care Survey stated the average range median in Los Angeles County is $22 an hour with the maximum cost of $33 an hour. However, with St. Francis Home Health Agency we are dedicated to providing the best in-home service and at an affordable price. We accept long-term care insurance, workers’ compensation, and veteran’s assistance to assist with the cost as well.
