Medicare doesn’t pay for:
- 24-hour-a-day care at home

- Custodial or personal care (like bathing, dressing, or using the bathroom), when this is the only care you need
How Much Does Alzheimer’s Home Care Cost?
According to the 2020 Genworth Cost of Care Study, the average national median cost for companion care (classified as homemaker services) was $54,912 ANNUALLY for a home health aide and $53,768 for a homemaker. The hourly rate for a home health aide ranged from $17.00 in Louisiana to $33.00 in Minnesota. The median cost for an hourly caregiver is $24.00 per hour.
Genworth calculates average median rates based on 44 hours per week. If your loved one only requires the help of a companion for a few hours per day or week, your costs may be significantly lower than these estimates.
For a clearer picture of your potential costs, determine your loved one’s needs and contact Senior In-Home Care Experts to inquire about companion care providers and average costs in your area.
