Located just 50 miles from the Gulf Coast along the western boundary of the Greater Houston metro area, Katy is a great option for seniors who want to age-in-place in their own home. Approximately 3,060 of the city’s 21,729 residents are seniors aged 65 and older, and about 1/3 of Katy’s population is Hispanic or Latino. There are several top-ranked health care facilities in the area including the 208-bed Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital which has a Level III trauma center, 24-hour emergency room and dedicated Chest Pain Center.

Katy seniors who need in-home support from either a home care or home health care provider can expect to pay about $4,290 per month for 44 hours of care weekly. Monthly in-home care rates in Katy are slightly more affordable than the national average of $4,481 for home care, and $4,576 for home health care. 

Note: Home care cost data was not available for Katy, so data for the closest city, Houston, was used. 

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