We appreciate that your friends and family are important relationships. However, friends and family have responsibilities including their own work and households, and may not have the skills and training you need. Also, if you hire privately, you become the employer of the caregiver and are responsible for everything that comes with that.
Optage offers skilled, compassionate, and flexible care givers that are bonded, insured and have undergone a thorough background check. It is our responsibility to meet your in home care needs as professionals. Your family and friends want the best for you - so do we.
Every person we serve receives a Personalized Care Plan specific to their needs and budget. Several factors help determine the exact cost including Level of home care services received (non-medical, skilled nursing, etc.), Number of visits, Number of hours of care per visit. Our services are typically billed on an hourly basis. This makes it easy to create a personalized care plan for you. To discuss the exact rates for the services you may need, contact a Care Services Counselor.
Your privacy is important to us. We adhere to all applicable federal and state guidelines related to privacy of personal and healthcare information. This starts once we have a formal services agreement, before a caregiver even comes to your family member's home. The written service agreement stipulates the exact restrictions on the use of your information, which clarifies that unauthorized individuals will not be given access to information without a client's - or legally authorized representative's - formal consent. Your information is never sold to a third party under any circumstances.
