While home care for an elderly loved one might seem like a more affordable option, it’s often not the case. We’ve put together an overview of the average monthly cost of home care compared to what you can expect to pay at an all-inclusive Totalcare facility.


There are many factors to take into account when calculating the cost of looking after someone with home care needs. From full-time care workers, housekeeping and rent to home security and more, it all adds up.
