Help and home care options!
One situation that often arises is a healthy senior who lives fairly independently who nevertheless feels that they need some help. This can range from organization or home maintenance to ordinary household chores, like cleaning or laundry, that the client wants to take a rest from after a lifetime of work
Home care—in particular the lower-level type of care often referred to as companion care—is probably the best bet in this situation
We Help families save BIG as they give their loved ones the best care.
Caring for parents as they age is never easy. The help from home care services allows you to maintain your relationship while providing the best care possible.
Jamhuri Healthcare Services is the source for affordable caregiver services, whether it’s one day , one week, one month, or one year and even life time. Other agencies might be unaffordable due to high prices and some even charge a service fee, usually as a checkout surprise, based on the price of their services..
Expense will always be a major factor in care decisions.
First, let’s look at some average top-line costs for each type of living arrangement, using the national median costs as provided by the Genworth cost of care study.
Senior living—$1000-$4000 per month
Assisted living community/facility—$3,750 per month
Nursing home/skilled nursing facility—$6800 per month
Memory care (for those with Alzheimer’s or dementia)—An extra $1200-$1500 per month on top of other costs.
Comparing these costs to home care can be difficult, since home care is usually charged by the hour. But a standard schedule for a client with relatively limited needs might run to 10-12 hours a week—roughly $800-$1000 per month at the national average rate of $21 an hour. Someone with more intensive needs, however, could easily need twice as much time, and according to the Genworth cost of care study, full time homemaker services can reach $4000 a month.
Whatever choice you make—and even if you approach aging with the belief that leaving home is inevitable—there’s a good chance that you’ll need to age in place for some length of time. What’s more, there are a number of situations where aging in place with the help of home care actually makes more sense than the alternatives. Particularly when you calculate the emotional toll of leaving a home of many years, or of leaving a much-loved community, choosing an institution can come with some hidden costs that make home care the better bet.
If you do have to choose, choose carefully to get the care that best fits your needs.
Home care is the best choice. It allows the client and their loved ones to avoid the antiseptic environment of a facility and allows everyone involved to treasure those last days in familiar surroundings
