Bloomington is located on the banks of the Minnesota River in Hennepin County, Minnesota, just south of Minneapolis-St. Paul. There are plenty of activities available for local seniors, including birdwatching and fishing at the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge, dining out at restaurants offering all types of cuisine, visiting the Minnesota Zoo, the Science Museum of Minnesota or the Bell Museum of Natural History and shopping. The city of Bloomington has a population of 84,935, of whom 19.3% are seniors 65 years of age and older.

Bloomington has multiple quality home health care programs available for its senior community. According to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020, homemaker services cost $6,292 per month, and home health aide services cost $6,483 on average. Both services cost more in Bloomington than the national averages, which are $4,481 for homemaker services and $4,576 for home health aide services.

Note: Home care cost data was not available for Bloomington, so data for the Minneapolis Area 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.
