MET LIFE STUDY FINDS COSTS FOR IN-HOME HEALTH CARE HIGHEST IN MINNESOTA

Posted by: Laurence Harmon on 10/30/2008

The Twin Cities metro area--and Minnesota in general--report the highest average cost nationally for in-home healthcare aides:  $28/hour.

The cost of a homemaker aide in Rochester, Minnesota (home of the Mayo Clinic, by the way) is about $26/hour, highest in any metro area in the country.  Statewide, Minnesota averaged $22/hour for homemakers, matching the highest average among states.

Nationally, the rate for homemakers was $18/hour in 2008, unchanged from the previous year. The cost of home health aide labor increased only slightly, from $19/hour to $20/hour in this year's survey.

Rates for adult day services in Minnesota match the state average of $64/day. However, the Twin Cities metro area has an above-average cost of $78/day.
