Who Can Use Non-Medical Home Care?
"Mom just finished her chemotherapy and is a little weak. She could use help with meals and basic housekeeping until she regains her strength."
"Mom remains in good health for her 80 years and wants to live at home even though Dad is now gone. Since I have a newborn, I am not always able to be there."
"Grandpa is in an independent living apartment, but he needs rides to doctor appointments and to get his hair cut. (He still likes to go to his favorite barber after 40 years!) He also enjoys his weekly outing to play Bingo."

Emerging Trends and Findings
For 10 consecutive years, Genworth has surveyed long term care service providers across the country. Genworth’s survey includes 437 regions that cover all Metropolitan Statistical Areas defined for the 2010 U.S. census.
Looking back at the past five years of survey results, Genworth recognizes emerging trends across the long term care services landscape. Overall, the cost of care among facility-based providers has steadily increased. For example, in 2008 the median annual rate for a private nursing home room was $67,525, compared with the 2013 median annual rate of $83,950. This means that Americans can expect to pay approximately $16,425 more per year today for a nursing home than they had to pay in 2008. This increase represents a 4.45 percent compound annual growth rate over that period.
In contrast to facility-based care, rates charged
by home care providers for “non-skilled” services have remained relatively flat over the past five years. For example, whereas the national hourly private pay median rate charged by a licensed home health agency for a home health aide was $18.50 in 2008, the 2013 hourly rate has only slowly crept up to $19.

The historical compound annual growth rate for this type of care service has been only 1 percent over a five-year period. Home care rates have remained flat in part because of increased competition among agencies and the availability of unskilled labor, and because the companies that provide these types of services
do not incur the costs associated with maintaining stand-alone health care facilities.
