Home Care for Seniors in Dayton, OH
Dayton was once the manufacturing hub of southwestern Ohio, but it eventually developed into a center of banking and insurance, with many of the old industrial lots replaced by open park spaces seniors can visit on foot. Thanks to Dayton's early days as a shipping hub, the downtown streets are comparatively wide and easy to drive, which opens up easy access and parking for the many attractions in the urban zone, such as the Dayton Art Institute, which offers discounted admission to seniors aged 60 or over.
Over 12.5% of Dayton's 140,000 residents are seniors aged 65 and over. Ohio has a highly seasonal climate, with summer highs that average 84 degrees and winter lows of 20, with moderate summer rain and enough snow to support seniors' winter activities outdoors. In the summer, seniors can pack a picnic lunch and enjoy discount admission at the Fraze Pavillion, which features outdoor seating for classic rock and other music events.
Seniors in Dayton pay an average cost of $4,385 a month for both homemaker and home health aide services. This is about $23 an hour, which is somewhat higher than the national averages. Nationally, seniors pay an average cost of $4,004 a month for homemaker services and $4,195 for in-home assistance from a home health aide. These prices average out to $21 and $22 an hour, according to the 2018 Genworth Cost of Care Survey.
