Located on the north shore of Long Island, the Village of Mineola is a suburban community of more than 19,000 residents that’s rich in history. Its name means “Pleasant Village,” and the community offers just that: a welcoming environment and small-town atmosphere while still providing easy access to big-city amenities. The community offers a safe environment for retirees with low poverty and below-average crime rates, and it’s just a short drive to New York City so seniors can enjoy all of the Big Apple’s art, culture and entertainment.

Based on the data offered by the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020, both home care and home health care services in the Mineola area cost an average of $4,957 per month. While these numbers may be higher than national averages, they’re right on par with statewide costs. Basic homemaking services are $143 more expensive in Mineola than they are in the average New York community, though home health care costs are the same.

Note: Home care cost data wasn’t available for Mineola, so data for the closest city, New York, was used. 

At Caring.com, we’ve compiled a comprehensive directory of every home care provider in the Mineola 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.

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 – oftentimes 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.
