How much does it cost for your home care services?

Factors that determine the cost of home care services are:

  • Current medical condition of your loved one
  • Level of assistance required to complete daily-living tasks such meal prep, bathing, running errands, etc.

A free, professional assessment by our RN Director of Clinical Services provides an accurate account of services followed by a cost estimate. Home care services are available on an hourly, daily, weekly or live-in basis and can be increased or decreased based on your budget.

Types of payment accepted by Health Force of Georgia are:

  • Private Pay (including credit cards)
  • Third-Party Care Insurance
  • Long-Term Care Insurance
  • VA Home Health Care Benefits
  • Georgia Medicaid
  • Georgia Medicaid Waiver Programs: CCSP, Source, ICWP and GAP
Do you provide services in assisted living facilities or personal care homes?

Yes. Many times, assisted living facilities do not have sufficient staff to care for and enable all residents to remain living independently. In cases like these, Health Force of Georgia provides supplemental care to fill-in gaps of service. 

Will I always have the same caregiver for my family member?

Yes. With 30+ years serving Atlanta families, we’ve learned that a successful home care experience for your loved one is based on consistent, reliable service by our caregiver. Our goal is to establish a trusted, long-term relationship with one caregiver for your family. If for any reason your loved one requests another caregiver, we’ll search our large inventory of personnel to find the perfect match.

There may be times when it may be necessary to schedule more than one caregiver if your loved one receives care for many hours in a day or many days in the week. In any event, the goal is the same: to have happy patients and families. We’ll work with you to make sure the same goal is achieved every time.

Are caregivers bonded and insured?

Yes. Every Health Force of Georgia caregiver we send to your home is our employee. Each caregiver is bonded and insured with general liability and worker’s compensation insurance should there be an accident in your home.

Are your caregivers nurses?

Yes. All caregivers are licensed and registered in the State of Georgia. Depending on your loved ones needs, we provide Registered Nurses (RNs), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) or Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs).

Do you do background checks on caregivers?

Yes. All caregivers undergo a stringent screening process that includes a criminal background check, employment experience verification and references, drug testing, certification & State of Georgia licensing verification and CPR/first-aid certification.

Do I need medical authorization from a doctor to begin services?

No. There is no “medical authorization” or “certificate-of-need” required by a physician or medical authority. Simply choose the type of service needed and how often you need it.

Do I pay the caregiver?

No. You are invoiced by Health Force of Georgia after completion of services on a weekly basis. You do not pay the caregiver directly.

Do you provide medical staffing for other professional health care providers?

Yes. Health Force of Georgia has a large inventory of highly-qualified, medical personnel ready to go work in your facility. We can provide supplemental, temp-to-perm and direct hire employees for just about every kind of in-patient or out-patient care situation.
