Adult day care caregiver with reassuring hand on seniors shoulder

In-Home Care- is very expensive at $25/hr. with a minimum of 4 hrs. a day. That is $3,000 per month for only 4 hr.’s a day of service. When 8hrs or more in-home care is needed, costs can easily skyrocket to $6,000 or more. In addition, it is often hard for an agency to provide consistency and there is frequent turnover of staff. Generally, there is little coordination of care and Medication management is not included.

Unfortunately, there are limited choices for senior care and fewer cost effective choices available. No one care option works for everyone, each has pros and cons. The choices include- In Home Care, Assisted Living Facility, Residential Care Home and Nursing Homes.

Of those choices the best, most cost effective long term care option is a family style Residential Care Home

Remember… in all settings, senior care is a service and the caring and feelings surrounding any care setting are based in human contact and emotions that depend on continuity of care, relationships among and between the administration, their own staff, the residents and families they serve.
