Home Care Cost and Pricing




Making it Easy to Choose the Best

With the soaring cost of assisted and skilled nursing care, private, non-medical home care services offer a superb, yet more cost-effective alternative to an institutionalized setting. Still, like family dynamics, budgets can vary greatly. So we accept a wide variety of payment options including private pay, long-term care insurance, Medicaid CAP DA, Medical CAP C and Veterans Administration.

Before you decide on long-term care options, see the 2011 MetLife Market Survey of Long-Term Care Costs.
