Private Home Care can be significantly more cost-effective than a nursing home, also referred to as a skilled nursing facility.
Since it is difficult to predict when, or for how long, you or a loved one may need care, it is important to understand, and plan for, the financial impact of round the clock care.
According to a 2019 New York Life “Cost of Care Survey”, the average cost of for a room in a Nursing Home, is $107,000 per year. In the Northeast, that cost is significantly higher.
The average cost of a 1-bedroom apartment in an Assisted Living Community is $57,000 per year, and it can be as high as $144,000 in the Boston area.
Private Home Care, on the other hand is less expensive and allows the client to age in place in the comfort of their own home. The average in-home care cost is $50,918 a year for 40 hours of help per week (in Massachusetts that number is closer to $79,000 per year).
