Assistance such as; meal preparation, laundry, getting the mail, remote controls, house cleaning, medication reminders, companionship, dementia or alzheimer’s care, can be provider, all while remaining in home.

Financial Challenges

How much do in home nursing services cost? Are private duty services covered by my insurance? What are the costs of an at home nursing agency compared to that of a traditional nursing home? There are several questions that one must consider when deciding between at home health aide and entering into a nursing home. While a nursing home may provide the facilities better suited for some of the more severe medical treatments, many of the medical and non-medical services that senior citizens require can be done at home. Saving them from the, often, more expensive  fees of a assisted living center. Some seniors may require attention for longer periods of time, perhaps even around the clock services. This type of care can also be provided by a senior companion care agency. By working with a team of licensed and knowledgable care providers, a schedule can be designed so that the  care recipient is tended for at all hours of the day.
