Home care — or in-home care — is a service which offers compassion and help to seniors who need assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) and wish to remain in their homes. Levels of care vary according to need, and can include companionship, meal prep, cleaning, transportation, and help with ADLs like bathing and dressing. Home care aides are trained to understand the nuances of senior care but generally aren’t licensed to provide medical services.
The median monthly cost of in-home care is about $4,671 in both Wilmington and the state of Delaware, according to Genworth.
