Benefits of Home Care vs. Assisted Living Care

What is "Assisted Living"?

  • Assisted living is a type of care facility that aids seniors with daily tasks. This type of facility does not necessarily provide daily medical assistance like a nursing home.

  • Assisted living facilities oftentimes provide transportation, housekeeping, laundry, and some medical services. Essentially, assisted living communities are built to help residents stay mobile, active, and safe. While these are all benefits, there is also less privacy and independence when one lives in an assisted living community.

Why Choose Home Care

  • Most people prefer to remain in their own homes to age in place if possible, and some elderly people like the privacy of receiving care from a professional in the comfort of their own home. Each person has their preferences, and some may not want to be around strangers, or they may just enjoy having their own space.
  • In-home care allows a person to receive help with daily tasks while still living in the home they are comfortable and familiar with.
  • Home Care allows the Caregiver to focus on one individual vs. 10-12 individuals at an Assisted Living Facility. There is more time for Interactive Caregiving. The individual client is main focus of Caregiver.
  • In-home care allows someone to stay with their family in an environment they are comfortable with. In-home care also lets seniors maintain independence and control over their routines.

At A Glance: The Cost

Cost of Home Care vs. Assisted Living Cost

Cost of Care Survey

  • The world’s population is aging at a faster rate than ever before and people are living longer. Every day until 2030, 10,000 Baby Boomers a day will turn 65 and 7 out of 10 people will require long term care in their lifetime.
  • The cost of that care varies based on care setting, geographic location of care and level of care required, among other things. Knowing the cost is a first step to helping you plan for it.
