How much does senior home care cost?

It’s commonly accepted that the vast majority of people want to stay at home as they age. In fact, according to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), 89% of people age 50 and older said they would prefer to remain in their home indefinitely as they age. Unfortunately, for families researching how to make this possible for their aging loved ones, the process can be overwhelming. Finding the right, helpful information when looking for care for aging parents can be very difficult in a sea of providers. One of the most common questions, if not the most common question, we hear almost every day is, “how much does private duty home care cost?” It’s the most natural question in the world. Whether we’re looking for care for ourselves or those we love, the financial impact certainly has to be considered.

Unfortunately this is one of the most elusive questions to have answered directly when researching senior home care in part because cost is very much dependent on each situation. Each particular client can have a variety of needs and the cost depends on that situation. Unfortunately, this has created the myth that home care is expensive. In fact, we work to deliver an affordable, flexible solution that can work within virtually any budget.

While most families think their parent will need full-time care, that is rarely the case. The vast majority of our clients receive a few hours of care per day, a few days per week – when they need it. A flexible solution that provides care only when clients need it helps keep home care services affordable – in many cases even more affordable than private facilities. In fact, home care clients of Nurse Next Door can have professional, supportive care in their own homes for less than $100 per week. To give you a better idea, here are a few typical scenarios and the customized solutions we’ve been able to create. Of course names have been changed (we value privacy!).

Taking Care – Mr. & Mrs. Klein

Senior Home CareMr. & Mrs. Klein have lived in the same home for the last 30 years. They have managed on their own quite well but a few months ago, Mr. Klein had a fall. Mrs. Klein had to take over more of the daily chores and the couple gave up their regular walks to the park as they were afraid Mr. Klein might fall again.

The couple now has a caregiver, Linda, from Nurse Next door come in twice a week for three hour visits. On one visit each week she’ll take care of the laundry, cleaning and other household chores Mr. & Mrs. Klein were struggling with. On the other, she takes care of the weekly grocery shopping before taking the couple on a walk together. She’s able to provide Mr. Klein a little added support while walking and of course provides Mrs. Klein peace of mind.

Solution: 3 hours / day, 2 visits / week

Approximate cost: $550 / month

Enriched Care – Mrs. Malone

Senior CareMrs. Malone is 81 years old, and as she has grown older, she has struggled with the mobility of her hands. Doing simple things like buttoning up her blouse, or bathing has become a more difficult task. A caregiver is hired to help her bathe, get dressed, and even put her favorite earrings on – she still loves looking great! Other visits consist of taking Mrs. Malone grocery shopping, to her appointments, cooking delicious meals together, and setting up her pill box for the week, to ensure she remembers to take her medications

Solution: 4 hours / day, 3 visits / week

Approximate cost: $1500 / month

 

 

Vital Care – Mr. Brown

Palliative CareMr. Brown has ALS and was paralyzed from the waist down at the time he first became a Nurse Next Door client. Caregivers focused on personal care and assisting Mr. Brown on outings and getting to appointments. As his condition advanced, and his paralysis moved up his body, a Tracheotomy procedure was required, and the tasks to take care of Mr. Brown changed. The caregivers all attended training provided and funded internally by Nurse Next Door, in order to know how to effectively use the instruments necessary to care for Mr. Brown, to service his required needs. Luckily, in doing this, he is able stay in his home, as he has wanted.

Solution: 7 hours / day, 5 visits / week

Approximate cost: $4000 / month

 

Of course included in each of these solutions are some tremendously valuable benefits including a Perfect Match caregiver, care management by an experience Care Designer as well as around-the-clock access to a team of specialists who can help families when emergencies arise.

Our services page outlines more of what each level of service covers. Typically, our clients only need our first level of care as they begin to age, as a preventative measure before something happens or conditions worsen. Our Care Designers find a Perfect Match caregiver for each client based on not only their clinical needs, but also their passions, interests and hobbies. Need someone who can speaks Italian and loves the opera? No problem! We then create customized care plans that help keep our clients at home and provide caregiving family members peace of mind.

If these home care services sound like they could help you, or your loved one, live at home longer, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page. We’d love to set up a FREE Caring Consult™ to build a senior home care plan catered to your needs and your budget. If you’d just like to learn a little more about what we provide, have a closer look at our home care services.

  7. Jo-Anne Cahill

    My mother has Dimentia, and with age it has become worse. She cannot be left alone. I am her main caregiver. what we need is someone to come in for a few hours a week so I can go to appts., see a friend, have some time to relax. Could you plan home care services for us?

  8. Barbara Gordon

    Do you provide night care were a caregiver would stay with them for a 12 hour night shift. Would need to be 7 nights per week. What would be the cost?

  9. Rina Sant

    Nursing homes typically charge higher fees than residential homes because they also provide specialist medical care. A nursing home can cost between £500 and £1,100 a week, with the average cost approximately £36,000 per year. The cost of a care home will depend on the type of accommodation, where it is located and the services it provides. However, you will not be expected to meet all these costs yourself.

  10. TOM CORSILE

    My mom is recovering from a total pelvic exenteration. She has been in the hospital and rehab for three months dealing with complication after complication.

I am her primary caregiver but have been stretched thin between my family of two kids and pilot husband. She is ready to go home but I can’t continue to take care of her 24/7. We need 5 days a week at least for a few hours a day I think.

Bragg, and I’m here in town for 5 days but that doesn’t help the rest of the 360. please any information would be wonderful.

  39. Sandi

    I would like to have someone to come for about one week so my husband and I can take a much needed vacation. We have been my mother’s 94+ caregivers in our home now for about 5 years now. What we would need is someone to come for dinner each night to give her dinner and pills, her insulin shot after and spend the night. They will need to give her breakfast before leaving for the day and make sure she takes her pills, leave a sandwich for her lunch and repeat this routine each evening again. Other than this she can be left in the daytime. She really prefers to be left alone to watch tv during the day and night. Do you have this service available and what would be the cost for the week?
    Thank you, Sandi

    My Dad is 90, my Mom is 82 and does not drive . We, his three children, live the closest, 2 1/2 from their house. At various times he needs help getting to Dr appointments, and even though family lives close by, we, his children, do not want to keep inconveniencing them.
    They would need help getting to Dr appointments, helping my Mom and Dad take short walks outside, and any other Dr appointments my Mom might have .
    My Dad is still driving, but won’t be long before he is no longer able to.

    Hello,

    My mom is 75 years old with dementia. She broke her right hip last October and just recently had another fall and sustained a pelvis fracture. She is currently in hospital awaiting a bed in Rehab.

    I don’t want to put her in a nursing home and prefer that she stay with my dad, as they are currently living together.

    Are there any other options for my mom’s care to be handled in house and how much would this cost? Could this be covered by OHIP as my mom is disabled and my dad cannot afford it as he is retired on a very fixed income but they don’t want to be apart?

    Thank you for your time.

    Hello,

    My mother is 72, and was just released from the hospital to rehab. She wants to be at home. Right now she can’t stand on her own or get into and out of a chair or bed without the assistance of two people. She also is on dialysis. We are hoping she will be more mobile after rehab, but want to know what the options and cost are for a home nurse.
    Thank you!

    I need help for my mother very quickly. I honestly don’t think she will last very much longer and I desperately need her to come home because that is what she wants. She honestly won’t need that much care. I will be here 24/7 to feed her and everything. I can’t change her diaper though or do anything with medicine.

    We require a nurse to be there through the night. My Dad is in palative care at home and requires assistance through the night. Administer meds, keep an eye on him and be able to help him to his feet to go to the bathroom. 11pm to 5 or 6 am.mon to friday

    My mother is 89 but fully cognitive. Unfortunately she suffered a stroke which effected her occipital lobe and therefore her vision. She was unable to go home. Currently she is in a nursing home and it is fine as far as care but she is not getting any mental stimulation for people she can carry on a conversation with as, most of the residents in the nursing home have dementia/alzheimers. I feel horrible that she is in a place where her needs are met physically but not mentally. I would like to bring her home, but I do have to work full time. What would be the best solution in terms of care. She can still dress herself but she needs meals, someone to give her meds and companionship. She needs assistance for bathing and person care.

      Hi Shelley,
      Thank you for reaching out to us and sharing your mother’s story. Cognitive stimulation is important and our caregivers come to clients’ homes to ensure all tasks are being done but also to build relationships and carry out conversations. We’ll have someone contact you shortly as you definitely contacted the right place!

    Hi, My mom is 73 and lives in her own suite downstairs. She may need a few hours a week to help her, with some cleaning, laundry and groceries. Does a seniors benefit help to pay for that of homecare with the financial part. She pays rent here, and doesn’t leave her much left over. Thank you Lorrie Baer

    My mother is 73 and has dimentia. It is progressing quickly. She can no longer go to the bathroom on her own, she does not remember how to cut her food. Sometimes i can see that she is struggling to remember how to eat. I was the only caregiver until i was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer. My sister in law movec in to help us out. But it seems like i am still doing all the work. I work full time and have gone threw chemo and radiation, surgery and i start another 4 months of chemo. Im exhausted. I love my mom and would love for her to stay with us. I dont know what to do. People tell me its time for her to go into a home that can provide for her better and also so i can concentrate on beating my own battle. I dont know which direction to go.

    I have to have a walker. What I need is someone to go with me for a bit of support for different appointments or go with me to shop for clothes.. Can you just ask for help here and there and perhaps more than 2 hours sometimes. Will be pleased to hear from you. Just want to take a load off my daughter some times.

    I been asked to drive a dialysis patient to and from treatment 3 times a week 20 miles each day 11 to 3 plus a one hour travel allowance. What would the appropriate cost be for this service?
    This is in the northwest suburbs of Chicago.

      Hi Nick,
      The best thing would be to check with your employment standards within the State of Illinois.

    Aloha:
    My Dad is suffering from Alzheimer/Dimensia for sometime now.
    My parents are moving from AZ to HI this month. My brother will be their care-giver for the time being until he finds a job. I think we are looking for help for three days (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) from either 8 – 10 hrs @ day.
    My Dad needs help mainly with his incontinence and keeping him mentally as well as physically active during that time. Since both of my parents are retired with a fixed income; we are looking for part time help as I mentioned.
    Can you give me some type of feedback or estimate on your services?
    Appreciate your time.
    Mahalo,

  69. Manuela Battello

    My father has dementia and is unable to communicate. He speaks but mostly doesn’t make sense nor does he recognize people. He is in a residence, though he can walk with a walker and a guide, and can mostly feed himself. The staff at the residence is overwhelmed and don’t have much time to do more than basic feeding, washing… It would be great if he could be at home and someone could assist with these basics as my 80 year mother cannot. I live in Toronto but my parents live in Laval, Quebec. I have no idea if there is an affordable solution. Grateful for some info
    Thank you
