How Does Hourly Home Care Help Seniors & Families?

Family caregivers get much-needed relief. Family members providing care for loved ones are under-appreciated and overworked. Hiring a caregiver will ease your burden, and provide you time to recuperate, or pay attention to the things you’ve neglected.

Regain your freedom. Don’t be held back because of physical challenges. A caregiver can provide the personal care and assistance needed to preserve independence. Set your own schedule and get the help you need at home when it’s convenient.

Reduce the time spent on everyday tasks that have become difficult. If everyday tasks like dressing, bathing, housekeeping, shopping and cooking are challenging, or seem to take all your time, it’s time to get the reliable help of a caregiver.

Regain your independence. Relying on friends, neighbors and even family members can be uncomfortable, and it can be frustrating. Schedules and reminders get confusing. A caregiver can come to your home on a regular schedule for all of the care and assistance you need.

It’s cost-effective. The cost of care for an hourly caregiver working 40 hours per week costs less than the average assisted living facility. From 12 to 20 hours a week (very common schedules), there is no comparison.

Peace of Mind. Knowing your caregiver is there to help you while ensuring your safety, provides peace of mind to both you and concerned family members and loved ones.

Is Hourly Home Care Cheaper Than a Nursing Home?

Astir Home Health Care provides the most cost-effective hourly home care in Northern NJ.

Contact us for a quote on hourly rates for care.

The cost of care at any level depends on the amount and type of care needed.  

The average monthly cost of care per month according to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2021: 

  • Assisted Living in NJ is $6,470 per month
  • Nursing Home Care in NJ is $11,250 for a semi-private room.

The average cost of elder care varies vastly between states, depending on the cost of living in the region. 

Generally, home care is always less expensive except in special cases where there is a need for 24-hour care or for offering specialized advanced treatments for prolonged periods.

In-Home Care tends to be much more affordable than nursing home care and remains a flexible alternative
