Many seniors are uncertain about their options when it comes to remaining in their home long term or downsizing. Depending on their situation; their health, if they have family around to help, and their finances, these are the things that they base their decision on, and usually their financial situation stops them from making the best choice for themselves about their health and receiving the care they need.

If you are part of that rising number of seniors who do decide to stay put and receive home health care, you are more than likely aware of how expensive it can be.
