Q: My husband and I are still relatively healthy, but we’ve told each other we don’t want to spend any of our days in a nursing home. It seems like it would be cheaper to just care for one another at home. Is that right? Which costs more – getting care at home or care in a nursing home?
A: That depends on whether you are counting just dollars, or whether time, energy and health are among the costs you are considering.
