Dallas suburb McKinney, TX, has ranked as one of America’s best places to live, according to CNN Money. Its affordability, sunshine and plentiful green spaces make this city an attractive retirement destination for the 20,700 of its 199,000 residents who are aged 65 and older. The vibrant downtown district, one of the state’s oldest and largest, offers seniors an abundance of boutique shops, dining venues and entertainment. Here, older residents can rely on Medical City McKinney, Methodist McKinney Hospital and Baylor Scott & White Medical Center for award-winning medical care.

McKinney’s seniors can utilize the services of multiple local home health care programs. The Genworth Financial 2020 Cost of Care Survey estimates that the average price of homemaker services and home health aide services in the city is $3,718 per month. This median is lower than the national monthly average cost of $4,481 for homemaker services and $4,576 for home health aide services.

Note: Home care cost data was not available for McKinney, so data for the closest city, the Sherman Area, was used.

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