How to Pay for In-Home Care
Affordable In Home Care
Moving a loved one into a nursing home can be very expensive and impersonal no matter how good the organization is. Often times people feel the best alternative is to hire a caregiver, however, this option comes with its own set of costs and often can put a lot of stress on a family. Trying to figure out the true cost for in home caregiver services is a very important step in the process of selecting reliable, affordable home care services.
Private in home care rates can vary quite a bit. It is not only about the type and amount of care required, the average cost for in-home caregiver services fluctuates across the country based on the cost-of-living index and even whether you are living in an urban or rural location. For these reasons, we recommend contacting your local Caring Hearts franchise and talk with a representative who would be happy to help with your budgeting questions.
