Home Care costs in Nebraska are rising faster than they are nationally according to Deborah Pont of Genworth financial, a company that sells home health care insurance.
“Statewide, home care costs have increased 3% annually over the past five years and that’s compared to a 2% increase nationally over the same period.”
Pont says long term care is not just about nursing homes anymore. She says that their surveys show more and more people are choosing to receive long term care in the home. An interactive map showing the cost of care across the country is at www.genworth.com/costofcare2010.
