For most of us, the word “home” evokes warm feelings of comfort, security and well-being. For older adults, home also means holding tight to cherished memories and maintaining self-esteem and independence. When illness, injury or age make life a little more challenging, remaining at home in a comfortable, familiar environment encourages recovery and enhances the quality of life. Home can be defined as a private residence, an independent or assisted living facility or even a short term stay in the hospital, we recognize the additional benefits provided by a personal, professional assistant.

Family caregivers get much-needed relief. Family members providing care for loved ones are under-appreciated and overworked. Hiring a caregiver will ease your burden, and provide you time to recuperate, or pay attention to the things you’ve neglected.
Regain your freedom. Don’t be a prisoner to your physical challenges. A caregiver can provide the personal care and assistance you need to preserve your freedom. Set your own schedule and get the help you need at home when it’s convenient.
Reduce the time spent on everyday tasks that have become difficult. If everyday tasks like dressing, bathing, housekeeping, shopping, and cooking are challenging, or seem to take all your time, it’s time to get the reliable help of a caregiver.
Regain your independence. Relying on friends, neighbors and even family members can be uncomfortable, and it can be frustrating. You won’t have to rely on the charity of others or feel you are imposing when you hire a caregiver to help.
It’s cost-effective. The cost of care for an hourly caregiver working 40 hours per week costs less than the average assisted living facility. From 12 to 20 hours a week (very common schedules), there is no comparison.

The cost of care at any level depends on the amount and type of care needed.
The average monthly cost of nursing home care in California is $9,247, according to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020.
The average cost of elder care varies vastly between states, depending on the cost of living in the region. Generally, home care is always less expensive except in special cases where there is a need for 24-hour care or for offering specialized advanced treatments for prolonged periods.
In 2020 on average, a nursing home in Texas costs around $300 daily for a semi-private room and $350 for a private room, and as such the monthly charges come to 9,200 for semi-private rooms.
So, the annual costs come in the range of $110,000 for full-time nursing home care. In addition to this, there will be other expenses for dementia, memory care, or other special services offered.
In-Home Care tends to be much more affordable than nursing home care, and remains a flexible alternative.
