The Dallas suburb of Richardson is both a college town and a telecommunications hub, giving it a bustling feel that’s appealing to active seniors. According to U.S. Census data, Richardson has a rapidly growing population of 121,323, about 14.5% of whom are 65 years of age or older. The temperature range in the area is fairly wide over the course of the seasons, from winter lows just above freezing to summer highs in the mid-90s. Outdoorsy seniors with artistic interests might enjoy visiting Richardson’s long-running biannual Cottonwood Art Festival, held in the park of the same name every May and October. 

Seniors examining home care prices in Richardson can expect to pay slightly less than they might elsewhere. The Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020 found that homemaker services and home health aide services each cost an average of $4,385 a month here; nationally, those costs are $4,481 for homemaker services and $4,576 for home health aide services. 

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

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

Richardson 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 Richardson:

Richardson Senior Center

Address: 820 W. Arapaho Road, Richardson, TX 75080
Phone number: (972) 744-7800

This community center is a hub for senior-related services and social activities that include low-impact aerobics classes, wellness and safety seminars, art circles, friendly billiards tournaments and dances. It also administers a low-cost van service that provides daytime rides for just 25 cents each way, though reservations must be made at least a few days in advance. The center’s services are available to area residents 50 and older. 

VNA Meals on Wheels

Address: 1420 W. Mockingbird Lane, Suite 700, Dallas, TX 75247
Phone number: (214) 689-2639 

Run by the Visiting Nurse Association, the local Meals on Wheels program delivers hot meals to Richardson seniors who are unable to make food for themselves. There is a suggested donation of $6 per meal, though the program does not require payment for participation. An adjunct program helps provide pet food on a monthly basis for seniors with animal companions. To be eligible for these services, Richardson adults must be disabled or over 60 years old, must be incapable of leaving home unassisted and must have income under certain limits. 

The Senior Source

Address: 3910 Harry Hines Blvd, Dallas, TX 75219
Phone number: (214) 823-5700

Active since 1961, this nonprofit agency works to support and protect area seniors by offering financial assistance, anti-fraud education and social volunteer opportunities. Its Senior Companion Program matches active volunteers of 55 and up with elderly participants who need social connections and a little help with the activities of daily living. The Senior Source is also a resource for family caregivers, providing both logistical and emotional support through phone consultations, in-person appointments and therapy group sessions. 

Community Council of Greater Dallas

Address: 1341 West Mockingbird Lane, Suite 1000W, Dallas, TX 75247
Phone number: (214) 871-5065

The Community Council of Greater Dallas is the official Area Agency on Aging for Dallas County. Its services for elderly adults and caregivers include income support, basic home repair, assistance with simple chores around the house, respite care and benefits counseling, among others. The agency also runs EmpowerYou! workshops designed to educate area seniors on useful approaches for saving money, staying physically safe and living healthily.

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.
