The cost of long-term care services increased across all provider types in 2021, according to a recently published 18th annual Cost of Care Survey* from Genworth. Specifically, the 2021 Cost of Care data shows the highest year-over-year increase in homecare services since Genworth began tracking the cost of care in 2004. Homecare services include homemaker services and home health aides. Individuals that provide homemaker services assist with “hands off” everyday tasks, such as cooking and cleaning. Home health aides assist with “hands on” tasks, such as bathing and dressing.
