Any of the above listed services can be customized into private pay services. Vibrant Homecare has just a 2 hour minimum per visit.

Vibrant is also able to accept most Long Term Care Insurance coverage. We would be happy to review your policy to determine benefits that might be available.

Companionship Services – $23/hour

Our companionship private pay services are available for clients who just need a little extra support, but not hands on bathing assistance, transferring or other more skilled tasks. This covers everything from taking the dog out for a walk, to playing cards, to light housekeeping, cooking meals, grocery shopping or errands etc. It can also include basic supervision if family just needs us to “be there.”

Skilled Services – $25/hour

Our skilled private pay services are available for clients needing a little more hands on care and might include things like personal care, bathing, transferring, etc. This might include helping a client get up in the morning or getting to bed in the evening. It might also include assisting with medications.

What we don’t do. Vibrant Homecare is a non-medical or unskilled provider. That means we do not offer any in home nursing, occupational, or physical therapies. These services are often covered by Medicare, a payment form we are not able to take. We also are not able to do wound care and are limited in certain types of medication assistance. If these services are needed, we are able to refer you to a nursing agency which specializes in this more skilled type of care and usually takes Medicare payment. We can work right alongside the nursing agency to supplement those services if both skilled and non-medical services are needed.

Supported Community Living (SCL) Services

Our sister company, Vibrant SCL offers hourly Supported Community Living services to individuals who have a brain injury or intellectual disability.

Rather than doing things for a person, SCL services are designed to focus on skill building for individuals who need to be taught or coached through activities of daily living, every day tasks or new goals. SCL Direct Care Professionals are coaches and mentors, who aim to teach or improve independence.
