The Costs of Care

In the February 3-9, 2023 issue of the Orlando Business Journal, these monthly rounded cost estimates were provided. The numbers concur with the people who work at the Orlando Senior Help Desk af the Jewish Pavilion.

  • Adult Day Care $1500 (many scholarships are available)
  • Assisted Living $4000
  • Nursing home semi-private rooms $8000
  • Nursing Home private room $10,000

Homemaker care from a company where the caregivers are fingerprinted and bonded- $57,000 a year ($30 per hour, and most companies want a minimal shift of four hours When you ask for a shorter shift, you pay much more per hour.)

While most seniors face major adjustments when transitioning to an elder-care community, Jewish seniors face additional challenges. Not only do they lose their homes, and many of their friends, but they also lose ties to their cultural heritage. This is where the Jewish Pavilion, a 501c3 non-profit, steps in. The Pavilion serves as a resource that provides room visits, festive holiday celebrations, and more to 450 Jewish residents in fifty facilities for seniors. The Jewish Pavilion promotes inclusion, and thousands of seniors of all faiths are welcomed into our programs.

The Orlando Senior Help Desk (407-678-9363) helps thousands of callers navigate their way through the daunting senior maze, alleviating caregiver stress while giving advice on all types of elder issues.
