Elk Grove is the southernmost large city in the greater Sacramento urban area. Home to 173,000 people, over 11% of whom are seniors aged 65 and over, Elk Grove maintains a quiet community life in its relatively small downtown area. Every first Friday of the month, local seniors join the many families in Elk Grove for a community art walk outdoors, which is almost never rained out in the generally mild and warm Sacramento-area climate. The Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento Medical Center is one of two major hospitals on Bruceville Road that offers age-related medicine on its campus. Seniors who need help getting around can make it as far as the downtown Sacramento transit station on Elk Grove Transit, followed by a connection that can take them as far north as Roseville on Regional Transit. Both transit services offer dial-a-ride and discount fares for seniors with valid transit ID.

Home health and homemaker services in Elk Grove cost local seniors an average of $28 an hour, or $5,434 a month, according to the 2019 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. Seniors elsewhere in the nation pay somewhat less than this for equivalent services. Nationwide, home health workers charge an average of $23 an hour, or $4,385 a month, while homemakers charge an average of $22.50, or $4,290 a month.

Note: Home care cost data wasn’t available for Elk Grove, so data for the closest city, Sacramento, was used.

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.
