Our philosophy on pricing
We offer the most competitive rates for the high quality and continuity of in home care we provide. We may not be the cheapest and we are OK with that. We are able to deliver the best balance of quality vs cost since we have low corporate overheads because of being a local, family run business. This enables us to pass on savings to our clients without compromising our quality.
We paying a bulk of our billing rate back to our experienced, high quality caregivers since they are the true custodians of providing quality, in home care to our client. We encourage all prospective clients to ask all home care agencies they are interviewing “what percent of bill rate goes to the caregiver?” This simple question will provide you volumes of insights on the quality, experience level and satisfaction level of the caregiver you are likely to get.
Our anticipated billing rate is determined by an interplay of 3 key levers that we transparently share with you:
- Number of hours and predictability of schedule: The longer the number of hours, and the more predictable the schedule, the lower the price point becomes. For example, our hourly rates are around $40/hour and our 24 hour care rates are around $16/hour
- Specialization and Skill levels: Our rates vary based on whether our client needs basic ADL support for an independent, overall healthy client, or if there is a need for expertise and experience for example in advanced dementia, Alzheimer’s, ALS’s, Parkinson’s, multiple medical co-morbidities, Surgical rehab to home shifts, Hospice or Palliative care.
- Finding a specifically skilled Caregiver who is comfortable accepting her shift rate based on client’s bill rate. We do not start delivering care till we are comfortable we have the right person staffed to provide quality and continuity of care.
We accept payments in cash, check and all major long term Insurance plans. We do not accept Medicare and Medicaid payments.
