PLACEMENT SERVICES MAY INCLUDE:
Sometimes, family members of a client are considering moving their loved one to a care home, but are not sure of the necessity. At other times, a client is discharged from the hospital with a recommendation from their doctor to move into a care home, or of their own volition the client is considering the option out of personal concern for their health.
Our team can meet with clients and their families to help assess the need to move into a care facility. Some individuals may be physically frail, or suffering from later stages of Alzheimers or other forms of dementia. Others may require less observation or assistance. We take each client’s individual needs into consideration, and whether a permanent move is necessary or not, ApexCare believes in giving families the tools they need to make an informed choice.
On-site Tours of Care Facilities
Even after selecting a prospective care home, many families or elders still have questions. ApexCare alleviates these concerns by arranging facility visits. It’s one thing to analyze data, and something else entirely to pay a visit and get a feel for it. We have found that being able to talk to care home staff and visit with residents at a facility helps reluctant families and elders alike be more at ease with the decision to transition to living in a care facility.
There comes a time when in-home care provided by close family and professional caregivers is simply no longer the safe option. With ApexCare’s placement services, we can help your family find the best care homes in your region.
PLACEMENT SERVICES FAQS
Every person is unique. Some elders remain capable even in their later years, but others are affected by age and disease, which can place great demands on the family members trying to care for them. Long-term housing solutions are unfortunately not inexpensive, which is also a factor that many clients must be forced to consider. Ultimately, if your loved one isn’t safe in their own home, or requires constant care that you or a caregiver cannot provide, a consultation with ApexCare can help you find the facility you need.
Assisted living facilities can be very expensive from month to month. Room and board at the most basic care homes can cost $3,000 per month and up. Most ALFs start at $4,000 a month, and can reach $10,000 per month depending on the quality of service. There does exist a wide range of long-term care options, but generally the starting budget is $3,000 a month.
Depending on the costs, care may be limited to the providing of room and board, daily meals, and very basic assistance. More expensive facilities may offer greater assistance with personal care, and the option for more specialized services in exchange for additional fees. Memory care facilities can also come with very significant costs, particularly for individuals with later stage Alzheimer’s or dementia.
We do not require upfront or out-of-pocket fees for placement services.
The unfortunate reality is that most long-term home care facilities are understaffed, and are unable to guarantee sufficient one-to-one care with every resident. Many clients opt to work with third party agencies, such as ApexCare, to provide trained caregivers that can be there when facility staff may be unable to step in.
