Would home care be too expensive for both? My elderly parents (92 and 95) live in my home. My mother got very sick and is in a rehabilitation center. My father has advanced dementia. While my mother is in the hospital I have had private home health care aides take care of my father at the cost of $30 an hour (which seems to be the norm in a suburb of Washington, D.C.) My mother will probably be discharged in a week or two and she will need extensive care because she cannot get out of bed without assistance. I was thinking of perhaps building an addition to my home (a large bedroom, sitting room, and bathroom) and hiring caregivers to come to the house. I am also researching memory care for my father (about $8,000/month) and a nursing facility for my mother (about $9,000/month) because she needs more physical care. I would like to keep them together but their needs are so different. I am going to get in touch with the county geriatric case manager to help with planning for their care. I am asking for any advice on what factors I should consider in deciding for their care. My mother says she will do whatever I think is best for them. I want to do just that. Thank you.
