Carrollton is a suburb of Dallas, Texas, in one of the largest metro areas of the state. It’s located along the shores of Grapevine Lake, a popular place for fishing and boating, with shady trails and picnic areas. Carrollton is a family-friendly area, and close enough to the Dallas city center for residents to access healthcare from the Baylor University medical system or to visit the Dallas Zoo, Dealey Plaza, or shop at the Galleria. The area is warm year-round, with mild winters and hot summers, and has a cost of living close to the national average, which may benefit seniors seeking in-home care. 

Seniors in Carrollton number about 11% of the city’s 139,000 residents and many of these individuals may wish to contract homemaker or home health care services to help them retain their independence and age in place at home. According to the Genworth Financial Cost of Care Survey 2020, homemaker and in-home health care averages $4,385 per month. 

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