Home Care for Seniors in Greenway
Greenway is a very small, rural community in Central Virginia, just a few miles north of Appomattox, where the Civil War ended. Nelson County is home to 15,000 people, 27% of whom are seniors aged 65 and over. Much of daily life in Greenway takes place at home since the area lacks markets or large commercial facilities. The entire strip of the James River where Greenway is located is heavily forested, which makes for popular hunting and hiking visits from tourists between spring and fall. Seniors in Greenway can enjoy long walks in nearly pristine wilderness, or lazy raft rides down the James to nearby Gladstone. The James River State Park to the south of town is also good for senior-friendly horseback riding adventures.
Seniors who live in Greenway can expect to pay an average of $3,956 a month for homemaker services. Home health aides in Nelson County cost an average of $3,995, according to the 2018 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. This works out to $20.75 and $20.95 an hour for these services, respectively. Across the nation, seniors pay monthly averages of $4,004 and $4,195 for these services, or $21 and $22 an hour.
