The town of Waldorf, Maryland, mainly serves as a suburban bedroom community of the Washington D.C metropolitan area. Despite this quiet designation, Waldorf has been noted for its high quality of suburban living and the surrounding county offers plenty of recreational activities as well. The regional climate around Waldorf is also mostly pleasant, with warm humid summers and generally mild winters. One particularly notable nearby historical landmark is Fort Washington Park, which is located just outside the town. Waldorf has a population of 67,752, of which 9.2% are 65 or older.

Waldorf’s proximity to Washington, D.C., means that the town is not far from several high-quality medical centers.

According to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020, home health services in Waldorf cost $4,601 for homemaker services and $4,767 for home health aide care. This is slightly above respective national averages of $4,481 and $4,576 for these services.

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.
