Care Plans & Rates

Private Home Care Costs Less Than You Think!

Home Care Assistance of Calgary works with families to provide high quality, flexible home care for loved ones based on their needs and budget.

Care is provided on an hourly, daily or temporary respite basis and can include support with basic activities of daily living and also more advanced care requiring the experience and skills needed to support a transition home from the hospital or rehab facility, or specialized conditions such as stroke or Alzheimer’s disease.

A conversation with our Care Manager is the first step to getting you started. After an initial phone consult we meet you in your home for a more detailed evaluation, after which we present different care plan options.

Our care consultations are always free of charge and do not commit you to our services.

Senior Care is Easier Than Ever !

How Much Does Home Care Cost?

If you are looking for a quality cost effective alternative to any type of assisted facility, home care is the choice for you.

Our pricing is highly competitive with other home care agencies in Calgary with hourly fees ranging between $29 and $32 per hour, depending on the complexity of care as well as your location in Calgary.

Independent caregivers may charge a lower hourly rate for “under the table” wages but be aware that with this type of arrangement comes the risk of legal implications as well as the inability to declare their wages as an expense for income tax purposes.
