  1. Bully for the 1%. As for the rest of us, just another business that prices itself out of the market before it gets off the ground. Does this purport to a long-term service [and support], or just a temporary arrangement for a month or less? What percentage of American seniors requiring round the clock care could conceivably afford these services, and for how long? And what type/level of professional help does one get 24/7 for this kind of money? All the more reason for the U.S. to get serious about supporting family caregiving, and to extend In Home Supportive Services to middle class citizens with incomes and assets well above the poverty line. For the prices quoted here, I’m betting that a resident of any of these States could find a bed in a skilled nursing facility for much less, or alternatively hire a competent nurse “team” directly, rather than go through a service.

    • Dear Dave,

      Most seniors have no idea how much it costs for home care. It can be helpful on a short-term basis, but on a long-term basis it can wipe out someone’s saving account. My new book will be a new resource to empower seniors to make choices before a healthcare crisis.


  2. Boston, MA area.

    Home Care Partners provides 24/7, live-in home care services which are billed on our “daily” rate of $240./per day. We do not provide rotating hourly workers for 8 or 12 hour shifts. Weekly costs for live-in: $1680. Monthly cost: $6720.

    • Boston sounds reasonable compared to other parts of the country.

  3. These numbers are highly suspect from my viewpoint. I am part of one of the largest in-home care networks in the world. I know many owners from many states around the country. Not one of them charges anything close to these prices. My daily rate in New Jersey is $230/day or $6440/month. Based on my market analysis, I’m the highest priced in my area for live-in care. I would like to see where this data came from. I don’t believe it for a minute. Sounds like the “assisted living” industry is behind this. These numbers make them look cheap, whereas most of them are more costly than home care.

    • The numbers were all submitted by real people in the industry on Linked In. Communicate with them directly if you don’t believe it. These numbers are high and seniors can only afford something like this on a short-term basis. Some parts of the country are less than others.
