Senior Care Cost Comparison
Average Costs in Kentucky
In home care is a one-to-one service that helps older adults age safely and independently at home with the assistance of a caregiver. Services may include:
- Household tasks that the senior cannot manage alone
- Homemaker services such as cooking, cleaning or running errands
- Hands-on personal care
The above cost represents the average in Kentucky for 16-44 hours of care per week. Contact your local independently owned and operated Home Instead office to learn more about hourly rates and services near you.
