The decision on how to best take care of your aging parent is a very personal and oftentimes stressful decision. The choice of in-home care for your aging parent can provide them with familiar surroundings; and depending on their health, maintain their daily routines that keep them happy, motivated and self confident.
Independence plays an important role in a senior’s psychological state. Studies have proven those familiar surroundings and the comforts of home help in overall well being. It has even shown to reduce the number of doctor visits made and if sickness does occur, recovery time is faster in the home environment.
In-Home Care oftentimes provides quality care at a more economical price than other forms of elderly care, such as nursing home or assisted living facilities. Cost estimates can be given over the phone. Some general details covered typically consist of:
- Hourly rates
- Billing cycle
- Payment methods
- Accepted insurances
It is a fact that budget is a major factor in decisions. Cost of services, of course, depend on the type and amount of care needed and your true costs can be determined once a clear plan of care has been devised.
