According to the Genworth 2016 Cost of Care Study, released on 5.10, the average American underestimates the cost of in-home long-term care by almost 50%. While this is stunning, we see it reflected in our experiences here at CCG everyday.
Also notable, the comparison between various long term care options in our service areas. On average, home health care annual costs are significantly less expensive than facility options. See images for Charlottesville and NoVA data. All the more reason to "Plan ahead. Start talking to your loved ones about how you, or they, want to be cared for in the event you, or they, need long-term care. Then educate yourself about the care options available, how much they cost and the options available for paying for them."
