High-quality, flexible and reliable care at home provided by The Home Nursing Group is usually a more affordable option than residential or other institutional care. The chart below demonstrates that the annual costs of a typical nursing home (high care) can be as much as 35% more than home care.
Other points to consider when comparing home care with the alternatives are that being cared for at home means receiving one on one care from a carer who will get to know you and your preferences. Staying at home also means keeping your own pets, your own schedule and living with your own treasured possessions in your own community. It means being able to potter in the garden, eat what you want and when you want and curl up in your favourite chair with a good book. Most importantly, being cared for at home ensures a higher quality of life, and for most people, that is beyond price.
Many of our clients are eligible for support from Commonwealth or State agencies or programs, such as Veterans’ Affairs or Home Care Packages. This support can reduce the cost of home care even further.
