“Home Sharing: Growing Trend or Desperate Need?”

Home Sharing: Growing Trend or Desperate Need?,” by Anthony Cirillo, U.S. News & World Report


“Many baby boomers have a real desire to age in their own home, provided they’re capable and it’s safe. But sometimes the economic realities of upkeep, the need for companionship and socialization and even help around the house makes you want to consider a more formal senior community. Home sharing provides an alternative to senior living, whose costs can range from $2,500 a month in an independent community to over $100,000 a year in a skilled nursing facility.”

LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform): Yeah, right, home sharing can replace assisted living. Reminds me of articles recommending full-time cruise ship living to replace nursing home care and save money.
