While the cost of care among care providers has steadily increased, the cost of facility-based providers has grown at a much greater rate than that for home care. As the American population ages and requires these services, it is vital to be aware of the associated costs in order to build a better long term care plan. —
The Cost of Care Tool is being released by BetterLivingExpress.com to allow care providers to determine the most economic manner to provide care for a loved one using a tool that compares data from more than 14,000 long term care providers in more than 400 regions across the nation.
Ken Semler, founder of BetterLivingExpress.com says it best, “The cost of care for a person requiring assistance is skyrocketing. The goal of this tool is to help people determine the most economic manner that can be used to care for their loved one”. The tool, released On July 20, 2015, walks a caregiver through a series of questions that uses the data provided to determine the financial implications of care alternatives. The tool will provide the financial requirements for Home Health Care, Adult Day Care, Assisted Living Facility and Nursing Home Care versus building an elder cottage or addition to an existing structure.
Elder Cottages are one of the fastest growing segments in the housing industry as the population ages and people look for affordable ways to care for their loved ones. Often the best solution is to provide the care on an existing property so that people can be close to their loved ones while still being independent. This combination makes an Elder Cottage an affordable consideration for most family situations.
