Sometimes caregivers need a hand.
Being a caregiver is a selfless and inspiring choice to make, but it is also very time-consuming. Many caregivers have to work during the day and do not want to leave their loved ones by themselves. While retirement facilities are an option, many individuals do not wish to leave the comfort and security of their own home and many caregivers would prefer to have their loved ones closer at hand. Other senior care options include in-home care, where an aid is available to provide services during the day or evening, or adult day health care, where individuals are able to go to a separate center to receive care during the day. One of the main issues with in-home care is the high cost, which can prove to be an issue for some families that require a fair amount of assistance. While quality care is a necessity, low cost is very important as well. Oxnard Family Circle Adult Day Health Care Center provides quality senior care at an affordable price.
What senior care services are provided with in-home care?
While services may vary from company to company, typical services provided by in-home care includes meal preparation, companionship, grooming, respite care, bathing, assistance with moving and assistance with toileting and feeding.
– Some in-home care providers are not permitted to distribute medication.
How much does in-home care cost?
The average cost of in-home care in California is $36.00 an hour. Most in-home care requires a minimum of three to four hours per visit and are not covered by Medicare long-term.
