Home Care Costs in Medford, MA

When it comes to your aging loved ones, you naturally seek the best care. Yet finding top-notch care on a budget can be a concern. At Visiting Angels of Medford, MA, we provide cost-effective home care in various areas including Arlington, Lynn, Medford, Malden, Waltham, or neighboring towns. We offer compassionate services at an affordable hourly rate that can support seniors aging in place.

How Much Does Home Care in Medford, MA Typically Cost?

Cost of services is a primary deciding factor for families needing in-home assistance for a loved one. Visiting Angels addresses these financial concerns by developing customized plans that focus on both needs and budgets. You can have the flexibility to schedule care based on when your family needs it most.

Moving your loved one to a nursing home or an assisted living facility may be an option. However, the high expense can make you feel reluctant. In 2023, according to Genworth, the monthly median cost of a nursing home facility in Massachusetts is between $13,000-$14,500.

In-home care provides a more personal option compared to nursing homes or assisted living facilities. Your loved one would be taken care of by a Visiting Angels caregiver 1-on-1 at a lower cost.

While in-home care expenses vary across the country and are based on your senior’s individual needs, according to Genworth, home care pricing in Massachusetts can typically range between $32-$50 per hour. You will need to check your local in-home care agencies for specific rates.

Visiting Angels can help you stay within your budget and avoid paying for unnecessary services by allowing you to schedule for the frequency of care needed. For example, if you don't require a 24-hour or a full-day caregiver, you can request the hours that best fit your needs. We offer family caregivers both relief from their responsibilities and peace of mind about budget.

Accepted Payment Methods at Visiting Angels Medford, MA

Long-Term Care Insurance

Some seniors may have specific coverage through a long-term care insurance policy. These policies are separate from health insurance and are often purchased through an insurance agency for long-term care expenses.

Veterans Benefits

In-home coverage may be available through various programs if a senior receives a pension from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The veteran is not billed directly for home-care services, it is handled directly through the VA making it easy on your family to establish and continue care. The VA makes Home Health Aid (HHA) & respite care assignments based on need. The VA allots between 6 and 24 hours of care per week from a HHA and up to 30 respite visits per year lasting up to 4 hours each.

To enroll with VA for respite services or a home health aide (HHA), follow these steps:

  • Complete form 1010-EZ
  • Apply online and call the VA
  • Complete the VA MD assessment
  • Request that Visiting Angels Medford is your provider for a home health aide or respite care visits 

When you have been approved, an authorization letter will be sent to our agency and we will be able to begin providing home care assistance at no cost to you. All costs will be billed directly to the VA.

Private Pay

Most Visiting Angels’ clients pay out-of-pocket—or “private pay”—which means older adults pay through their own funds. Usually, the funds are from individual retirement accounts (IRA), pensions, Social Security benefits, 401(k), or other savings.
