Scottsdale is a popular destination for seniors due to warm and dry weather year-round. This beautiful weather is complemented by an abundance of casual outdoor recreation locations like golf courses and parks, particularly McDowell Mountain Regional Park. Scottsdale also has a lot of shopping options and restaurants. The population of residents aged 65 and over is 23% which is 7% higher than the national average. 

Scottsdale has many quality home care agencies that can make it possible for seniors in the community to age in place more gracefully. These agencies charge an average of about $25 per hour according to the Genworth 2018 Cost of Care Survey. Both in-home care and home health care have the same average monthly cost of $4,767. Care in Scottsdale is somewhat more expensive than the national average of $21 per hour for homemaker services and $22 per hour for light medical care. 

Note: Home care cost data wasn’t available for Scottsdale, so data for the closest city, Phoenix, was used.

At Caring.com, we’ve compiled a comprehensive directory of every home care provider in the Scottsdale area – complete with types of care provided, services offered and reviews from families who’ve actually used the service. In addition to our in-depth provider listings, we’ve compiled a list of resources to help seniors and their families access all the tools they need to age in place safely and gracefully.

Scottsdale 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 Scottsdale:

Beat the Heat – Summer Program

Address: 10440 E. Via Linda, Scottsdale, AZ 85258
Phone: (480) 312-5811

The Beat the Heat Program is run by the Via Linda Senior Center and is designed to bring much-needed supplies to home-bound seniors during the intense summer months. These items can include bottled water, nutrition supplemental drinks, healthy snacks, personal hygiene items and cooling relief products like ice packs and mini fans. Volunteers are responsible for donating items and deliveries are made by staff with the Department of Human Services. During visits, the staff can evaluate a senior’s situation and make additional recommendations for assistance.

Gleaners Brown Bag

Address: 7700 E. Roosevelt St. Suite #107, Scottsdale AZ 85257
Phone: (480) 312-2224

Operated out of the City of Scottsdale’s Granite Reef Senior Center, this food relief program provides a weekly delivery of groceries for seniors in the area with low incomes. These bags are filled with proteins, fruits and vegetables and bread products that can supplement a fixed income. Significant funding is provided by Scottsdale Community Partners, and volunteers are essential to the execution of the program. Between 200 and 300 seniors benefit from this program every year.

Housing Rehabilitation Programs

Address: 6535 E. Osborn Rd., Building 8, Scottsdale, AZ 85251
Phone: (480) 312-7156

The city of Scottsdale provides several different housing rehabilitation programs. Low-income seniors who qualify can improve their energy efficiency, get critical repairs to their roofs and get the emergency work they need to keep their home livable. Seniors can also request modifications to their homes that allow them to age in place. The income limit for a household of one is $40,850. Applications can be submitted online or through the mail. Contractors are picked by program staff based on a bidding system.

Maricopa County Elderly Assistance Fund

Address: 301 West Jefferson, Suite 100, Phoenix, Arizona 85003
Phone : (602) 506-8511

Seniors in Scottsdale who are enrolled in the Senior Property Valuation Protection Program, which freezes the value of homes for property tax purposes, for at least one year may also be eligible for an additional tax credit from Maricopa County. This credit only applies to seniors who live in an organized school district. The County Treasurer determines exactly how much primary school district taxes are credited for each particular homeowner according to the amount of money in the fund. Manufactured and unsecured mobile homes do qualify.

Determining Your Loved One’s Need for In-Home Care

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.


Guidelines for Talking About In-Home Care

If you’ve determined that your loved one needs the assistance of a care provider in their home, it may be time for a difficult conversation. Handled correctly, however, this process can bring a family together and ensure that everyone’s concerns are addressed. Use this PDF as a starting point to help the conversation stay as positive and productive as possible.
