The Cost of Home Care in the Rochester NY Area
Home care is often the most affordable form of elder care
The No. 1 objective of most families is to help their loved ones stay in their own home in a safe and familiar environment for as long as possible. No one’s first choice is to go to a facility or an institution no matter how pretty the building or the décor. For a senior to stay in their own home safely they may need just a few hours of assistance or they may need 24/7 care. An evaluation by a Caring Hearts of Rochester professional is needed to determine what is best.
Don’t assume or guess that home care is too expensive
The only way you can find out if you can afford home care is to have a trained care specialist evaluate the specific personal care needs of your loved ones and develop a care plan to fit those needs. They also can evaluate how many hours are really needed given the medical conditions, as well as the availability of friends and family to participate.
Home care provided by Caring Hearts of Rochester with thoroughly screened, experienced and monitored caregivers can be a life-saving and rewarding option.

Grandma’s caregiver brings so much joy to her life. She enjoys the conversation and the time they spend together. She has helped Grandma continue to be independent and allowed me to feel secure in knowing that she is well cared for. Without Katie, Grandma’s quality of life and level of joy would be much less.

I have been working with Caring Hearts of Rochester for three and a half years. I am so very grateful for the wonderful care they provide to my mom. I live out of state and used to worry about mom all day long. I no longer worry about mom, ever! I visit quite frequently and enjoy the conversation & companionship of the caregivers. Mom’s caregivers see her daily and they help her with everything from cooking and cleaning to bathing and shopping. They are kind, compassionate, loving and have truly become family to mom and me. We thank God for our truly perfect situation and we thank Caring Hearts of Rochester for providing me with peace of mind and mom exceptional care. I appreciate your kindness very much. Thank you, thank you thank you!

My mother doesn’t live nearby so I wanted someone to be with her a few days a week while I was at work. I have peace of mind knowing a responsible and kind caregiver is with her when I can’t be. Thank you very much for your wonderful care of mom.

I am very pleased that I chose Caring Hearts of Rochester for my father. They are truly committed to their care and the high integrity of their staff completely puts me at ease. I don’t worry about dad like I used to because I know that he is taken great care of each day. I am so thankful for your services and the two caregivers that see him during the week.

When my husband returned home from the hospital, you met us with the caregiver at our home to ensure everything went smoothly. This personal introduction to our caregiver brought about an easy relationship for all of us. Since then we have really become close to her and we appreciate all that she does for our family. We continue to recommend Caring Hearts to close friends and relatives requiring assistance. Thank you!
