Riverside is located in the Inland Empire and is known as the birthplace of California citrus farming. The city has a population of 331,360, and more than one in 10 of those residents are seniors aged 65 and older. Retirees who love history may enjoy visiting the Mission Inn and the California Citrus State Historic Park. Another attractive feature is the city’s notably pleasant climate, making it an ideal location for seniors looking for a comfortable city for retirement. 

Riverside’s seniors have many choices when it comes to home care and home health care providers. Data from the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020  indicates that in Riverside, seniors can expect to pay an average of $5,053 per month for both home care and home health care. This is more than the corresponding national averages of $4,481 for homemaker services and $4,576 for care from a home health aide.

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.
