How do I know if my loved one requires in home care?
There are a number of warning signs indicating that a loved one might need in-home care, including memory problems, accidents within the home, falling or other injuries, and struggling with daily tasks such as bathing, toileting, cooking, or dressing. They may also need assistance with transportation for appointments or errands, which our caregivers can provide.
How quickly can I arrange for in-home care services?
Depending on the needs of your loved one, we can frequently arrange for personalized home care immediately following an assessment at your loved one’s home. This allows us to determine their unique needs and the ideal schedule for home care services, as well as which of our caregivers would be the best fit.
How much do the home care services cost?
It is difficult to estimate how much elderly care services will cost for your individual situation until the free initial assessment is performed. Our cost for home care begins at $24.00 per hour and goes up to $32.50 per hour for special services, such as dementia and Alzheimer’s care. Following your free in-home care assessment, we can give you a better estimate of the cost of home care based on your loved one’s needs.
Do you require a minimum of hours and days per week in order to provide home care?
We have a four-hour minimum and we require at least one caregiver visit per week while your loved one uses our in-home care services.
Are home care services covered through insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid?
Because we only offer non-medical home care services, our elderly services are not covered through Medicare, Medicaid or other regular medical insurance types, such as Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, etc. If you have long-term care insurance, you may submit paid receipts to them for reimbursement of your payments.
What are my payment options?
At OC In Home Care, we accept private home care payments, including checks, bank payments, and autopay.
Is your home care agency licensed?
Yes, our non-medical home care agency is licensed through the California Department of Social Services, Home Care Services Bureau.
What makes your home care company different from the competition?
We value quality, compassion, and excellence above all else, and our experienced and friendly caregivers strive to ensure that our clients’ needs are met at all times. To ensure that clients always have a non-medical caregiver when they need one, we have a dedicated backup team to prevent any gaps in home care service due to caregiver illness, vacation, etc. We also have a care supervisor who works with our caregivers to ensure that the in-home care they provide is of the utmost quality. Our team is also on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Are your home care services available in nursing homes and assisted living facilities?
Yes. We can provide elderly care services in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or anywhere else your loved one calls home. We can even provide someone to provide companionship for your loved one during a hospital stay.
What if the assigned caregiver is sick and cannot make it?
We plan ahead to ensure our clients always have the care they need, even when their regular caregivers are ill or otherwise unable to perform their home care duties. We create a backup team for each client and introduce the client to his/her backup team in advance to ensure that the client feels comfortable with all caregivers. If a caregiver has called in to cancel his or her scheduled shift, the client will receive a call from the office to notify them of the change and advise them about who their replacement caregiver will be.
