Attleboro has been called “the Jewelry Capital of the World” for the high concentration of jewelry manufacturers in this southern suburb of Boston. As a largely residential community of 45,000 people, 14% of them seniors aged 65 and over, Attleboro has several public parks and crime rates well under half the national average. Seniors in Attleboro who own a home in town may face a high overall cost of living that’s 19% higher than the national average, though healthcare at local facilities such as Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital can be up to 16% less expensive than the rates seniors pay nationally. Attleboro is close to the ocean, and as a result, it enjoys a largely stable and mild summer climate, where the average daily highs reach the low 80s.

Seniors in Attleboro pay an average monthly cost of $5,434 for homemaker help and $5,482 for home health aides, according to the 2019 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. These rates are equivalent to $28.50 and $28.75 an hour, respectively. Seniors nationwide pay significantly less for similar services. Homemakers nationwide cost $4,290 a month, or $22.50 an hour. Home health aide services cost $4,385 a month or $23.00 an hour nationally. Across the country, in-home nursing care costs an average of $87.50 a visit.

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

Attleboro 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.

Eligible seniors must meet residency, income and asset limitations to enroll in the program.

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.
