The cost of investing in House Calls for 30 days is $2000. This includes all the services that are described on the Services page of the House Calls website. It's important to note that we reinvest about 25% of this amount directly back into you, our client. By this, we mean that we arrange the delivery of some the services you may need at no additional cost to you. This includes:
- A one hour complimentary consultation with me in your home where we discuss your medicines, your illness, and any other medical issues you may want to discuss.
- 20 free nutritious meals delivered to your home
- The first 12 hours of personal care services at no additional charge. If you would prefer not to take advantage of the meals we offer, then we increase the personal care service time to 20 hours at no additional charge.
We realize that this is a significant financial commitment for many people. When considering the decision to hire House Calls, it's important to remember that our health is one of the most important gifts we have and that there are very few other priorities that are more worthy of our investment than our health. It's also helpful to consider that the cost of other living options may be far greater than living in your own home with House Call's support.
With all that being said, there are some creative ways to help pay for House Calls that may help make it affordable:
- The most straight forward way, of course, is paying the full amount with a check or Credit Card. Your credit card can actually take the place of a short term loan.
- Consider asking other family members to help you with the cost, so that the total cost is divided among several different people, thereby lessening the cost for any single individual.
- Divide the payments using a combination of financial sources, such as paying a portion with a check and the remainder with a credit card.
- Consider asking several family members to contribute a portion with a combination of credit cards and checks.
- For those of you who live in Independent Living Facilities, there are some facilities who are willing to negotiate creative financing arrangements with their residents when you need help from House Calls. Speak directly with me, Dr. Fuller, about these arrangements.
- Finally, consider the financial cost of alternative living arrangements, such as assisted living or nursing homes, and the emotional costs of having to permanently leave your home. Investigate the real costs of these facilities that occur each and every month, and compare them to a single investment in House Calls delivered to you in your present home.
And here are a couple of additional things to consider:
- If your spouse is ill, consider the stress and the physical and mental toll imposed on you when you are the one responsible for arranging and coordinating all the care that's needed. This may cause your own health to suffer because of the sacrifices you're making.
- If you're a child of a parent who is ill and are responsible for their care, consider not only the stress on you and your family, but also the cost and inconvenience of perhaps having to miss work or change your life style in order to be the caregiver for your parent.
- If you live out of town and are trying to arrange care for an aging parent, you know first-hand of how difficult it can be to arrange all the care that's required.
- Finally, consider the value of Peace of Mind, of knowing you have a trusted group of experienced and dedicated professionals working with you.
So hopefully now you can appreciate the value of an investment in your healthcare that will help you to remain home for as long as possible. If you have any questions about the cost of House Calls, please Contact Us.
