What Home Care Agencies are Charging for Services in Alameda

In Alameda County, getting help at home isn’t as easy as it sounds. For many, bringing a stranger into their home to take care of them in a very vulnerable time can seem overwhelming. There are worries about who that person might be, how much to pay them, how many hours they should work and the most prevalent: Can this person be trusted? While most would prefer a family member or someone they know take care of them, this may not always be the best thing. While promises are made, commitments can be difficult to keep. If caregiving is absolutely necessary, many find that hiring outside assistance with a regular schedule is the most reliable solution. That way, family members can remain as family, and others can be counted on to do the work.

There are many choices in hiring help at home. Many will hire privately, that is, pay out-of-pocket for help on an “as-needed” basis. There are many different ways to find caregivers. Some senior centers maintain lists, there are other sources from discharge planners, physician offices and hospice agencies. Remember, too, that if you hire privately, you work out the hours, rate of pay, etc… and, you’re also an employer and must abide by IRS rulings for tax purposes. Here’s a brief rundown on the types of agencies in Alameda County.

AttendiCare is a family owned and operated agency licensed to provide non-medical home health care services to assist seniors with their activities of daily living (ADLs). All of our dedicated and highly-trained caregivers are registered home health aides who have been fingerprinted and background-checked. As employees of AttendiCare, our caregivers are licensed, bonded, and insured under our liability and workers compensation policies. We regularly screen for Tuberculosis (TB) and check driving records, and randomly test for drug use. We begin preparing caregivers for their Certified Senior Care Aide (CSCA) credential once they join our team, and then provide them with regular training to ensure that our seniors always receive the best care.

By having discussions with seniors and their families to understand the needs, and then tailoring a plan of care, we help seniors age in place gracefully, allowing them to remain independent in the comfort and convenience of their own homes, while giving their families peace-of-mind.

In addition to assistance with ADLs, our services may include fall prevention, dementia care, companionship to help prevent loneliness and depression, and post-hospitalization care to reduce the chances of a re-admission. We provide care in single shifts as short as 4 hours up to 24-hour care, with typical hourly rates ranging from $26 to $32.

We believe in fully serving the needs of our seniors from the time they invite us into their homes to the time they leave them. When the time comes that they are no longer able to remain at home, we can help with assisted living or hospice placement. We can even help identify different ways to pay for care.

To better serve veterans, we have a dedicated team of VA-Accredited Benefits Agents to help secure Aid and Attendance pension benefits from the VA, as well as a VA-Accredited Attorney on staff.

Compare Home Care Agencies in Contra Costa County

Getting help at home is usually the first thing that people think about when chores and/or personal care is becoming difficult or impossible. Housekeepers, gardeners and occasional handymen are the easiest for most of us to consider because they don’t carry the psychological burden of no longer being able to do for ourselves. Caregivers can be resisted because of cost, fear of loss of independence, autonomy, and privacy, or just due to stubbornness and personal will.

While most prefer a family member or prior knowledge of the caregiver, this may not always be possible. Family members might have good intentions, and while promises are made, commitments may be more challenging to keep. It’s may not be the best thing to have a family member, friend or neighbor as a caregiver. The most reliable solution is hiring outside assistance with a regular schedule. This way, family members remain as family and others can be counted on to do the hands-on work.

There are many choices in help at home. If hired privately, the hours worked, and wages paid are between you and the employee. You are also liable for worker’s compensation and IRS withholding. Here’s a brief rundown on the types of agencies in Contra Costa County.

All Seasons Homecare’s foundation has always been family. In 2005, Executive Director, Jenna Hughes, decided to change course in her life and took on a staffing role for a Non-Medical Home Care Agency in Walnut Creek. She fell in love with the industry immediately and has since dedicated her life to helping the senior community live safely and happily in their own homes. It was clear from the beginning that she had found her calling. Her family was very proud, especially her father, Edd Ozard, who was interested in hearing about her new career and the amazing work she was doing.

Edd couldn’t help researching the industry and seeing what Non-Medical Home Care was all about. This research confirmed the viability of Home Care and what a wonderful option this is for seniors. In June of 2007, they were presented with an opportunity. The time was right and All Seasons Homecare was born. They started out with no more than the basics but All Seasons Homecare was able to deliver quality care and compliance from the beginning.

From there, they have expanded their headquarters, hired the best management team, community liaisons and service representatives in the business. Their caregiver standards have exceeded industry standards for years and are still exceeding the State of California Home Care Aide requirements. They have always treated every All Seasons Homecare employee like family and expect them to treat every client the same. In 2016 Jenna and her husband welcomed their first child, Colton into the world. The joke in the office when Colton comes in to visit us is “be nice to that little guy, he’s your future boss!” The family affair continues…

Edd, the owner of All Seasons Homecare, along with Jenna, believes in empowering the All Seasons Homecare team to be the best in the business. He is a tremendous support to every employee, keeps the business fiscally responsible and compliant and develops senior community value propositions. The entire team is dedicated to providing the absolute best care to every client they have the privilege of serving.

All Seasons Homecare is an independently owned, mid-sized agency; licensed with the State of California, HCO# 074700008. All employees are covered under Workers Compensation, Liability Insurance, and Bonds; no caregiver is ever subcontracted. No deposit required to start service. They offer a free, no-obligation assessment prior to the start of care. VA and Long-Term Care Insurance approved and have specialists on staff to help with claim processing. Pricing is on average $28 per hour. All Seasons has been serving families in Contra Costa County and the Tri-Valley area for over 12 years and look forward to serving many more!

What are Home Care Agencies Charging in Napa County?

Getting help at home is usually the first thing that people think about when chores and/or personal care is becoming difficult or impossible. Housekeepers, gardeners and occasional handymen are the easiest for most of us to consider because they don’t carry the psychological burden of no longer being able to do for ourselves. Caregivers can be resisted because of cost, fear of loss of independence, autonomy and privacy, or just due to stubbornness and personal will.

While most prefer a family member or prior knowledge of the caregiver, this may not always be possible. Family members might have good intentions, and while promises are made, commitments may be more difficult to keep. It’s may not be the best thing to have a family member, friend or neighbor as a caregiver. The most reliable solution is hiring outside assistance with a regular schedule. This way, family members remain as family and others can be counted on to do the hands-on work.

There are many choices in help at home. If hired privately, the hours worked and wages paid are between you and the employee. You are also liable for worker’s compensation and IRS withholding.

Here’s a brief rundown on the types of agencies in Napa County.

Napa County Home Health Agencies

These agencies provide services that are 100% covered by Medicare, Med-Cal or private health insurance. This service must be ordered by a doctor. However, you still have a personal choice of agency. Requirements to qualify for care are: 1: Homebound, 2. Need for skilled care. Skilled care means that you need a nurse, a physical, speech or occupational therapist. This is also a time and visit limited services. Some aide service can be available, if there’s a skilled need. This is a service NOT covered by Long Term Care Insurance.
