Home Health Care Providers in Pennsylvania
Home care in Pennsylvania helps seniors who need assistance with “activities of daily living (ADL’s)” and their family. In-Home Care can be provided in Pennsylvania by either a home care agency or private duty caregivers. Agencies have physical locations and are more strictly regulated by the state, but many more experienced caregivers decide to work directly for the family as private duty home health aides so they can avoid the agency overhead that cuts into their wages.
Cost of Home Care
In Pennsylvania, prices for agency home care average $25/hr while private duty averages $18/hr. Caregivers in Pennsylvania are certified as Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA). HomeCare.com has 3 levels of care that the home health care providers on our network offer: companionship, personal, and advanced personal care. Companionship requires the least experience and is also the most affordable. For seniors needing help with more activities of daily living (ADL's), personal care is the best and most common option. For late stage dementia and other complex cases, our caregivers offer advanced personal care, which starts at $22/hr but can go higher as cases become more complicated.
