Cost of In-Home Care vs. Nursing Homes

In healthcare, in-home care is the fastest growing service offering. More and more people are taking the necessary steps in their lives so they will be able to remain in their homes as long as possible. A hard decision for people (and family and friends involved in their care) in their later stages of life is deciding when or if they should go to a nursing home. Many do not want to choose that path, but without proper knowledge of what options are out there, they are left without a choice. Of course, when looking into care options, cost is a huge factor, so we have compiled pricing and benefit information to help make the decision easier.

The Most Valuable Gift You Can Leave Your Loved One: A Plan

One of the most overlooked and undervalued gifts you can leave your loved one is a plan. In home care we find that a great number of our clients do not have a plan in place in case something happens to them such as a life altering disability or death. Some people believe that an estate plan is only for the wealthy or a will is good enough. Others think they are to young to put together a comprehensive plan. The reality is no matter your age or income everyone needs to have a plan. An advance care plan, estate plan, a will and power of attorney are all essential to guiding those left to make critical decisions on your behalf, these documents protect your assets and give you and your family control. We have witnessed firsthand how having a plan can relieve stress and anxiety during difficult times.
