Home Care Services:
Our Altamonte Springs, FL office specializes in Non-Medical home health services, which feature Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) providing assistance with our clients’ Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). These services are designed to support the geriatric population in their homes, assisted or independent living facilities, senior communities, nursing homes, rehab units, and hospitals and are typically paid for out of pocket or from a trust fund. These in-home services are often covered by long term care insurance, but almost never by standard health insurance. Our office staff would be more than happy to check with your insurance company to see what services are covered by your plan. Our costs typically range between $14-18/hour, which is about 20% less than the average cost according this 2012 Genworth Financial Study. Call today for your complimentary in-home consultation and specific quote.
