Affordable Home Care Services

We can tailor a home care arrangement to fit both your family’s lifestyle and budget. We can schedule a professional CAREGiverSM to help for a few hours or as many as 24 hours. We're here for you seven days a week, including holidays and weekends. Call us for a free, in-home care consultation to talk about how we can meet your family’s needs.

Home Care Rates in Waltham, MA

We specialize in serving families throughout the Waltham, MA area.  Our rates are based on the amount of time you need services as well as whether you need weekday or weekend coverage.

Our basic rate is $26 per hour.  This is for 12 hours or more each day.  If you need shorter service we charge $29 per hour for four to twelve hours on weekdays and $32 per hour for weekends or shifts less than 4 hours.

There is no commitment as to the number of days you use us.  Some clients use us only for the occassional doctor visit while other clients require 24 hour a day coverage.

You can significantly reduce your costs if you are eligible for subsidized services through Springwell, the agency responsible for state services in our service area.  Because we have a contract with Springwell any service hours awarded by Springwell can be blended with private pay hours.

Senior Care Cost Comparison

Professional in-home care allows your family members to age in place. They can continue to live safely and independently in the home they’ve known for much of their lives. In-home caregiving offers peace of mind -- and it does so very affordably.

Unlike the high, fixed costs associated with assisted living facilities or nursing homes, the price of in-home care stays flexible to meet your needs. Keep control of your budget by scheduling as few or as many hours of care as you need.

Insurance Coverage for In-Home Care

Does insurance cover home care services for seniors? The answer is: maybe.

Long-Term Care Insurance

Some long-term care insurance policies cover certain in-home care services. Check your policy to see if it covers the services you need at home. We work with many long-term care (LTC) insurance companies to bring you the covered services you need over the short or long term.

VA Benefits

The Veterans Administration also offers financial programs that pay cash to veterans and/or their spouses. These funds may be used to help pay for home care for veterans.

It’s often a confusing and burdensome process to figure out if your insurance or the Veterans Administration will cover the home care services you need. We’re here to help. We can help you find out if you qualify for any VA programs.

If you have questions about how to pay for senior care, give us a call: (781) 314-0153. We will be happy to discuss your options.
