No one wants to pay for something they don't need...

Updated: Nov 21, 2019

We are all concerned about costs. Cost of living, cost of healthcare, cost of everything....

sadly, there are some costs that come late in life that can drain everything you have saved

over decades of working. Long Term Care costs an average of $7698 per

MONTH for a small private room, according to the Administration of Aging; a

subdivision of the US Department for Health and Human Services. 


That's a stunning price tag, but there is good news that you need to know! 


For the same amount of money, you can get over 400 hours a month of care at

home... YOUR HOME... with a private caregiver... all to yourself, not shared with 30

other people. Nursing homes provide a licensed nurse 24 hours a day, and if that's what

you need then nursing home care is a great option for you. Nursing home staff do their best, but the ratios are not one to one for providing care no matter what the position held by staff.


Here's the reality though...


Most people who go to a nursing home do NOT actually need a licensed nurse 24 hours a day. They need supervision and help with a few daily activities like taking a bath, cooking,

cleaning, going to appointments, and remembering to take medications. A nurse is not

required for any of that. Also, would it really take 400 hours a month to accomplish

those tasks? That’s 13 hours a day! That’s way more than what most people need for

basic activities of daily living. With our services, you can customize your care (and cost)

to cover ONLY WHAT YOU NEED, and you get to stay in your home. If you need a

Home Health nurse or a doctor, the caregivers from Amazing Grace Homecare can help

basic activities of daily living.

With our services, you can customize your care (and cost) to cover ONLY WHAT YOU NEED, and you get to stay in your home.
