Providing care in the home can be expensive. However, when comparing the cost of home care to moving a loved one into an assisted living facility or nursing home, the comparative cost of home care is quite affordable.
A recent Genworth Cost of Care Survey found that assisted living facilities in Utah can cost up to $6750 per month. When comparing that with home care costs, one needs to understand that the difference for most people between needing to move to assisted living and staying in your own home might be as little as a few hours per day of help. Maybe it’s having someone to prepare a meal or two and do some housekeeping. Maybe the need is getting mom or dad up in the morning with a bath and back in bed at night. For the same cost of high end assisted living, you can have an aide in the home for about 10 hours per day. If mom or dad needs just a few hours per day, home care can be the most cost effective option.
