Raleigh, North Carolina is North Carolina’s capital city and part of the three-city area known as the Research Triangle, along with nearby Durham and Chapel Hill. From the North Carolina Museum of History to the natural beauty found along the hiking trails of William B. Umstead State Park, seniors have plenty of options for active living in Raleigh. The city’s senior population aged 65 and older represent 10.2% of Raleigh’s 474,069 residents. Because of the city’s position in the Research Triangle, Raleigh is home to two of the nation’s top-tier research and teaching medical facilities at Duke University and UNC-Chapel Hill

Raleigh seniors also have access to a wide array of home health services. Per the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2019, homemaker services cost $4,004 monthly on average and home health aide services run $4,195 monthly on average. Both monthly costs are lower than the national averages of $4,290 monthly for homemaker services and $4,385 monthly for home health aides. 

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

Raleigh 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 Raleigh:

Resources for Seniors

Address: 1110 Navaho Drive, 4th Floor, Raleigh, NC 27609
Phone Number: (919) 872-7933

Resources for Seniors was founded in 1973 with the core mission of providing area seniors with home-based services that would allow them to maintain their independence as long as possible. Home modification and repair services can be found through this resource with payment determined based on household income. Resources for Seniors can also help coordinate transportation and other components of in-home care. 

The Center for Volunteer Caregiving

Address: 1150 SE Maynard Road, Cary, NC 27511
Phone Number: (919) 460-0567

The Center for Volunteer Caregiving provides seniors with transportation assistance as well as light housekeeping and yard work, grocery shopping, companionship and respite support. The services provided are targeted toward seniors that want to continue living independently without family or friends nearby to offer a hand. All of the center’s services are free of charge, but donations are encouraged. 

Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIEAP)

Address: 220 Swinburne Street, 4th floor, Raleigh, NC 27620
Phone Number: (919) 212-7000

LIEAP is a federal program that helps Raleigh-area seniors with payment for their heating bills. There are eligibility requirements, but seniors get priority and may sign up for the program a month before other residents. Applicants must provide a phone number so that a caseworker can reach out if any additional information is necessary. 

A Helping Hand

Address: 1502 West NC Highway 54, Suite 405, Durham, NC 27707
Phone Number: (919) 403-5555

This nonprofit organization offers respite care, senior companionship, medical transportation and home care services. While the group charges for its services, it works with people at all income levels through grants and charitable contributions to ensure that its services are in reach of any older adult that needs them. 

Weatherization Assistance Program

Address: 217 West Jones Street, Raleigh, NC 27603
Phone Number: (919) 707-9198

A program of the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality, the Weatherization Assistance Program improves household safety and energy efficiency for low-income residents. The goal is to ensure that residents stay warm during the harsh winter months and cool in summer, with an emphasis on North Carolina’s senior population.

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.
