Rising nursing home costs and the recent economic slowdown have many adults with aging parents considering alternatives for senior care, including home care. A new report by Genworth’s 2013 Cost of Care Survey notes that the annual cost of private nursing homes has increased by almost 25% over the past five years. The increased costs are due to a variety of factors, including the rising price of insurance, food, and labor. Even assisted-living facilities, which have traditionally been a cheaper alternative, have seen a similar increase during that period. However, the cost of home care has increased much more slowly. As a result, more families are turning to home care services to ensure that their loved ones are taken care of in their old age.
