We understand that you’re apprehensive about the cost of in-home care. When considering other options like assisted living, adult day care, and skilled nursing non-medical in-home care is the most affordable one. By comparison, the average resident at an assisted living community pays $3,450 per month. Nursing homes can cost up to $948 per day. In addition, Lenox Home Care can prevent costly accidents and injuries that result in extended hospital and rehab stays. Every Lenox Home Care client receives our fall prevention protocol. We assess your environment for Fall risks helping your loved one live in safer surroundings.
On of the great benefits of working with a licensed agency is that you can cancel your service agreement at any time. You will only be charged for services provided. Of course, we request that any cancellations be made with 24 hours notice.

Lenox Home Care companion and sitter services are most often paid through the client’s private funds. Long Term Care Insurance usually has a home care benefit as do various private support institutions. In Atlanta, the Holocaust Survivors Claims Conference, through the JC&FS, offers financial assistance as do other religious community organizations.
An upfront deposit is typically required before personal home care assistance services are rendered, generally covering about one week of service. The deposit will be refunded at the end of your relationship with the agency if all invoices have been paid. You will be charged on a semi-monthly basis. A service agreement is required but may be cancelled by the client at any time, allowing maximum flexibility as needs change.
Lenox can also help with third-party billing, easing the burden of cumbersome paperwork.
We bill on a twice-month basis.
