Located in southeastern Montgomery County, Silver Spring, MD is known as the region’s cultural hub, boasting a dynamic arts and entertainment scene. It’s also just a short drive from the attractions of Washington, D.C. The city’s downtown district is home to a variety of live performance venues, shops and restaurants for seniors to experience. With its temperate climate, seniors can also enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, exploring some of the area’s beautiful parks and trails or stopping by for a quick nine holes at Sligo Creek Golf Course.

According to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020, the average cost of homemaker services in the Silver Spring area is $4,601 per month, and the average cost of home health aide services is $4,767, which is quite similar to the statewide median. However, these costs are higher than what seniors typically pay on average across the U.S. at $4,481 per month for homemaker services and $4,576 per month for home health aide services.

Note: Home care cost data was not available for Silver Spring, so data for the closest city, Washington, D.C., 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.
