The modestly sized city of Monroe, North Carolina, is a part of the surrounding Charlotte metropolitan area but comes with its own notable urban geography as a historic municipality founded in the mid-19th century. Monroe’s climate is the same as that of the neighboring Charlotte region, meaning warm, humid summers, mild winters and plenty of annual sunshine in between wetter periods. In terms of attractions, Monroe’s small downtown is a picturesque historic site and offers numerous small cafes, restaurants and locally-owned boutiques. It’s also home to several easily accessible parks. The 2019 U.S Census Bureau population estimate for Monroe is just 35,540 residents with 12.8% of them being 65 years of age or older. This is below the U.S average of 16.5%.  

Monroe itself offers medical services through the comprehensively staffed Atrium Health Union hospital. Access to even more extensive health facilities is also available in nearby Charlotte. According to the Genworth 2020 Cost of Care Survey, the average monthly price of homemaker services in Monroe is $3,813 while home health aide services cost $4,004. These prices are much lower than the respective national averages of $4,481 and $4,576 for these services.

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

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.
