Often referred to as The Biggest Little City in the World, Reno is situated in the northwest portion of Nevada near the California border. Out of the city’s 256,601 residents, 14.4% are seniors over the age of 65.

While casinos may be the first destinations that come to mind, Reno is home to numerous arts and cultural attractions such as the National Automobile Museum, Nevada Museum of Art and The Discovery interactive science museum. Seniors who like to stay active outdoors are less than an hour’s drive from exploring Tahoe National Forest and participating in snow sports during the winter at nearby Lake Tahoe. 

Seniors in Reno typically spend the same amount for homemaker services as they do for home health care, $4,957 a month. Although a bit above the national median costs of $4,290 for homemaker services and $4,385 for home health care, Reno’s cost is still relatively affordable. 

At Caring.com, we’ve compiled a comprehensive directory of every home care provider in the Reno area – complete with types of care provided, services offered and reviews from families who’ve actually used the service. In addition to our in-depth provider listings, we’ve compiled a list of resources to help seniors and their families access all the tools they need to age in place safely and gracefully.

Reno 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. Below, we’ve compiled a few of the most helpful resources in Reno:

Meals on Wheels

Phone Number: (775) 328-2575

Homebound seniors at risk of malnutrition can receive up to seven meals a week from Meals on Wheels. In addition to the hot and frozen meals, participants receive two shelf-stable meals in case of emergencies. To qualify, applicants need to be at least 60 years old and unable to leave home because of their geographic location or physical condition. 

Weatherization Assistance Program

Eligible seniors rent or own a single-family home and have an income at or below 150% of the federal poverty level. Weatherstripping, air sealing and insulation are some of the upgrades seniors can receive at no cost.

The Nevada Energy Assistance Program (EAP) provides an annual energy bill credit to low-income Nevada residents. The benefit amount depends on income, household size and energy usage. When funding is available, seniors can also receive assistance with past-due bills. Eligibility requires that gross monthly income doesn’t exceed 150% of the federal poverty level.

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.
