I Need Some Recommendations For In Home Care For My Husband With Dementia

I Need Some Recommendations For In Home Care For My Husband With Dementia

We have no children, my husband is an only child with no relatives in our state, i have one married brother who is an hour away, they both work full time. It has come to the point that I need help with him. I am retired and devoted to him but I can't do it all by myself anymore. Does anyone have recommendations for in-home care? He doesn't need a nurse, just an aide.

Hi Mary, A good place to start this search is with your local county-level agency on aging. For York County, the phone number is (Phone number can only be seen by the question and answer creators) or the website yorkcountypa.org. From the website, it looks like they have got some great home and community based services for both seniors and caregivers, including referral services. I hope this helps!❤️

You could also consider adult day care, where he would go there from 8 am - 4 pm or so. That way you have a break during the day. The one my dad was in before i moved him to a facility cost $95 per day.

I have been using Home Instead agency sitters for over a year. My husband cannot be left alone, and he has a home health policy that pays for this. They charge $21-$25 per hour here in Kentucky.
