The New York Times article by Ron Lieber raises key concerns about how the current Medicaid debate affects healthcare. Today, the average annual cost of a Home Health Aide in Richmond, Virginia is $39,765, whereas the average annual cost for a Semi-Private Room at a Nursing Home is $84,315. According to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey in 20 years those costs rise to $71,820 and $152,282, respectively. Through innovative programs and solutions such as our Personal Care Aide school, JFS is constantly finding new ways to bridge the gap between high health care costs and quality care.
