Pricing for Home Care Services
Home Care is More Affordable Than You Might Think
The most common way to pay for non-medical home care is private pay. But certain home care services may be covered by insurance benefits such as long-term care, Employee Assistance Program/back-up care or workers’ comp, veterans benefits such as Aid & Attendance, government programs like Medicaid and some Medicare Advantage plans.
Costs vary depending on location and your family’s needs, and our customized rate plans include a personalized approach to care, caregiver/client matching, advanced dementia care training and more. Because some payment options have certain eligibility requirements and service limitations, your local FirstLight® Home Care office can provide expert guidance to help determine what home care services are needed and which payment options are available to you.

How Much Help Do You Need?
Our home care pricing is based on the unique needs of your situation and the amount of time you need a caregiver per day. We can provide services short-term or long-term, from just a few hours at a time to live-in or 24/7 support.
Charles Needs 4 Hours of Care Per Day
Charles is still mostly independent, perhaps living alone, but due to some mobility issues due to age or even recovering from surgery finds he needs a little extra help with daily tasks. This could include help bathing and dressing for the day, light housekeeping and meal prep, and grocery shopping or other errand running.
Margaret Needs 12-16 Hours of Care Per Day
Margaret may live with a family member or an adult child who is her primary caregiver, but she can’t be left alone due to a condition such as Alzheimer’s Disease or a severe disability. Her main caregiver may work outside the home during the day and has evening activities and responsibilities that they must attend to, needing someone they trust to be with Margaret when they cannot be.
Nancy Needs 24/7 Care or Live-In Services
Nancy cannot be left alone, but lives alone or with someone else unable to care for her. In this case, 24/7 care (where caregivers attend to needs in 8-hour shifts) or a live-in situation (where assigned caregivers have 2- to 3-day shifts, but the situation also allows for them to get a full night’s sleep in their own space during that time) may be the best option. This scenario is common for those clients with Dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease, a severe disability with little to no mobility, or another major health issue such as paralysis due to a stroke. Caregivers are there to help with all personal and companion care needs, such as meal prep and feeding, using the restroom and personal hygiene, daily household tasks and errands, and transportation for doctor appointments.
