The value of living independently and safety at home

Most seniors would rather live at home than in a facility. While there are many options for seniors as they age, living at home is preferable for those who don't require around-the-clock medical care. However, they may need extra support if they want to continue living at home safely.

Home Instead® professional caregivers are experts at providing personalized, elderly care services at home to help improve the health and quality of life for aging adults.

So, how much does Home Instead cost? Let's look at Home Instead's senior care services and nationwide senior care costs – including home care costs – to help determine the right choice for your family member.

First, identify which home care services your loved one might need.

Before searching for senior care at home, you'll want to determine the types of services your loved one needs. In-home care is typically a few hours a day, sometimes up to 24 hours.

At Home Instead, we provide the following services in these categories:

  • Personal care
  • Housekeeping assistance
  • Memory care
  • Chronic illness support
  • Mobility assistance
  • Hospice care
  • Meal preparation
  • Transportation
  • Medication reminders
  • Companionship
  • Respite care for loved ones

Home Instead rates will depend on the type of services your loved one needs as well as how often they need help. Once you figure out what types of services you're looking for, your local Home Instead office can help you and your loved one determine the home care costs.

Second, understand how home care service rates are structured.

Home Instead rates, like many others, are calculated hourly. Rates typically involve a minimum number of hours that will cover the cost of staff and transportation.

Third, keep in mind the average prices* of other senior care options.

The average national cost for in-home care is much more affordable than alternatives. For example, the average monthly in-home care costs range from $2,353 to $5,259. This cost represents 20–40 hours of weekly personal, one-on-one care.

Residential care facilities offer health care for people needing help with day-to-day living. Assisted living is in the middle of long-term residential care choices. The average monthly cost for assisted living is $4,500.

The next level of care would include nursing home facilities. Nursing home facilities offer 24-hour-a-day care. The cost of nursing home facilities, on average, is somewhere between $8390 and $9,584.

Lastly, call the nearest office for local Home Instead fees and pricing.

So, when you are wondering how much home care for the elderly costs, you have a couple of factors to consider.

The cost of senior care will vary from state to state and depends on what services your loved one will need. But if you're looking for an affordable way to keep your family member living at home comfortably for as long as possible, fill out our form or call us to find an office near you and get a personal quote today.
