Where can you get great health care at an affordable price? At home of course! The popularity of home health care is on the rise and one reason is because patients and their families can get the best bang for their buck. Patients are able to heal at home, with the love and support of their loved ones, all while receiving high quality health care.
Home health care is currently the most cost effective option out there. It costs about one-tenth as much as hospital care and one-fourth the cost of living in a nursing home. With so many people on a limited budget these days, cost is definitely an important factor when making decisions about health care. The cost of home care varies based on the level of care needed, but on average, Americans receiving services pay about $21 an hour. If a patient needs someone a few days a week for an hour or so at a time this will of course cost less than 24/7 care. Due to the cost of having to add in room and board, the average price for a semiprivate room in a nursing home is about $200 a day. Private rooms cost more. This may or may not include health care services depending on the facility. By the end of the year a person living in a nursing home could have incurred charges nearing the $100,000 mark. For a person who does not require around the clock care, home health care is a good choice, especially if you consider you do not have to pay for those extra hours you don’t need care.
With home care as an option, patients and family members are able to receive assistance at a reasonable price without having to give up great care. With so many benefits home health care is sure to continue to be a leading choice well into the future. Read about the benefits of home care here.
