What Impacts Home Health Care Costs?

  1. Home health care costs are typically based upon care for one person. Caring for two people can be arranged but will incur additional costs.
  2. Home health care service needs can vary greatly and sometimes the needs require a more experienced caregiver or special skills. Home care costs may vary depending on the caregiver’s experience, case difficulty or case location. This may also apply if your needs are less than our typical minimum hours and days per week.
  3. Some circumstances and care needs may require protective equipment for the caregiver. The protective equipment can be provided by the client which will reduce the costs, or the caregiver can provide the protective equipment. Additional information may be found in the document titled: “Infection Control Guidelines”.
  4. Transportation services can usually be provided but will impact the cost of services.

Your home health care costs may be impacted by these and other factors. They may also change over time. Costs may change due to a reassessment of needs, a change in requested services and other factors. Contact us to discuss your specific needs.
