Dear Clients and Families,
We have been monitoring the spread of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and we now have a confirmed case in the state of Idaho. We will be following recommendations from local and federal regulatory agencies to take additional steps to prevent the virus from entering our client’s homes. We also have a few precautions we are asking you to take part in to ensure your safety and well as our caregivers. As you know our caregivers go to multiple homes throughout the day, each caregiver has been given a supply of hand sanitizer, masks and gloves. They have been instructed to sanitize between each client and inform us immediately if they have come into contact with anyone who is ill or running a fever.
The Gables is committed to providing the highest quality of care, compassion and comfort to our clients in their own homes. It is our pledge to ensure consistency in the services we provide and to address both the physical and emotional needs of our clients.

The Gables offers Companion care services in your home.

Services provided by Gables in Home Care may differ depending on the payer source. Some insurances will draw up a care plan with the client in mind and give the care plan to the provider. If the services are privately paid for the client, they may write up their own care plan. The services we specialize in are: Housekeeping, medication reminders, grocery shopping, chore services, laundry, bathing assistance, and much more. We try very hard to make sure the care plan meets the client’s needs
If you need help at home, you may think it is extremely difficult to get set up, but it isn’t. Getting services within home care can be as easy as a phone call and a meeting with someone from our home care team. If you have Medicaid and think you qualify for in home care you will need to apply for the aged and disabled waiver. If you would like to privately pay for the services, you would just give us a call and set up a time for a free consultation.
Our services can be paid privately as an hourly service, or you may qualify to receive these services at low cost or no cost through various state and federal programs.
If an insurance will be paying for your services, (Medicaid, Blue Cross, Molina, VA, etc.) most of the time it comes at no cost to you. Sometimes however there will be what is called a share of cost, and what that is usually is your insurance asking you to pay a portion of your services. For example, they will pay for your personal care services but may require you to pay for a portion of your housekeeping services.
