Tucked away to the southeast of Phoenix, Gilbert is a fast-growing town with many adult-only communities that appeal to retirees. It benefits from the desert climate of the greater Phoenix region, with minimal rain and warm temperatures year-round. Gilbert is home to the Mercy Gilbert Medical Center, a Medicare-approved hospital that provides excellent senior care. It also has a robust public transit system. These features make Gilbert appealing to many older adults, but the community remains multigenerational. Of the estimated 254,114 people who live in Gilbert, less than 10% are age 65 and older.

Home care can help Gilbert seniors remain home longer. The average cost for home care in the area is $5,148 a month per the 2020 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. Seniors who need home health care, including basic medical care, pay about $100 more at $5,243 a month. This is a higher-than-average cost compared to Arizona’s averages of $4,934 and $4,957 respectively.

 Note: Home care cost data was not available for Gilbert, so data for the closest city, Phoenix, was used.

Gilbert Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Gilbert:

AZCEND Community Action Program

Address: 132 West Bruce Avenue, Gilbert, AZ 85233
Phone Number: (480) 892-5331

Community Action Program provides seniors and people with income needs in Gilbert with emergency assistance.

CAP also handles emergency financial assistance, utility assistance and eviction prevention, which are services low-income, homebound seniors often need.

Phone Number: (602) 264-4357

Through SAIL, seniors aged 60 and older can get case management to help them remain independent in their own homes as long as possible.

AmeriCorps Caring Circles

This is a volunteer-run program designed to keep seniors at home as long as possible and as safe as possible.

Aging can be a difficult process, and loved ones may not always ask for help – often times it’s up to their family to evaluate their need for help around the house. While no two situations are exactly alike, this checklist can help you and your loved ones determine when it’s time to start the search for a home care provider.
