Senior care costs can vary drastically depending on location, care category and whether around-the-clock services are provided. The least expensive option in McLean is adult day health care, which only provides Monday-Friday daytime services in a care center setting. At-home services from a homemaker or home health aide average about $550 and $700 less per month than assisted living. When day-to-day household expenses are added in, the total may be more costly than residential care, which provides room and board. Nursing home care is by far the most expensive option in McLean, largely because it includes 24-hour skilled services.
