Although many of the procedures and qualifications for caregivers/nurses are the same across the board the pricing can change from provider to provider.
Custodial Care – Any form of daily non-medical service offered by a CNA. This can range from bathing, feeding, eating, cleaning and errands to name but a few.
Private Pay (aka Private Duty) – An hourly rate charged for duties performed on behalf of the senior. This is the preferred payment option of many agencies and primarily will cover all non-medical forms of care.
Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)
Registered Nurse (RN)
Advanced Practice Nurse (APN)
Most homecare agencies primarily accept private pay, which is normally charged by the hour. In some cases providers may take private insurance and/or medicare but this takes a special accreditation from the government, so make sure to ask or explore their website fully before going forward with services.
