While location influences the cost of senior care, the type of care a person needs is another major factor. In Sykesville, adult day health services are the most affordable option ($1,880). The most expensive option is nursing home care, with seniors paying an average of $9,733 per month for a semiprivate room.
Homemaker services ($4,004) and home health aides ($4,242) cost about the same as assisted living ($4,250). Since seniors who choose either of these options are still responsible for their regular monthly bills, such as rent and utilities, in-home care may end up being much more expensive than assisted living.
