Elderly In-Home Care Prices

We all get old and our bodies aren’t made to last forever. That’s just the way it is. Perhaps you or a loved one is aging and can no longer do everything it takes to get through a day. Everyday tasks like cooking, showering, and going to the bathroom become more complex. It’s happens to most of us as we age.

Nursing homes are extremely expensive and many people don’t like them. The care can be questionable as you have no control who the nursing home hires. The food is cafeteria like and the odors can be tough to deal with. Thankfully, in-home senior care is a popular and affordable option for those who need some help but don’t like the idea of spending their last days on earth in a nursing home.

Senior in-home Care Prices

It will cost $20 to $30 per hour for hourly in-home senior care. The cost will depend on the company you hire, the location of the home (is it accessible or in a remote location), and the nature of the tasks you need performed. Do you need the person to cook, drop off meals, or help the person use the bathroom? Perhaps you need them to help clean you or your loved one in the bath or shower.

Things to Remember:

  • You should see a break in price for weekly and monthly time commitments. The more you buy (of anything) the bigger break in price you will receive. That goes the same for senior in-home care.
  • Make sure to discuss, in detail, what activities your agreement covers.
  • Ask questions
