People tend to build up worth in some assets with time. Retirement savings, for instance, grow through compound interest, where interest earns more interest on itself. Home equity, or the value of your home minus any mortgage debt, also tends to increase with time.
Real estate is a big factor in net worth. Even with a mortgage, owning a home can still contribute to net worth. According to data from the Federal reserve, the average homeowner has a net worth 2.8 times the net worth of the typical person who doesn't own a home.

During May and June 2019, CareScout, a Genworth company, contacted 53,901 providers by phone to complete 15,178 surveys of nursing homes, assisted living facilities, adult day health facilities and home care providers.
Since the inception of the survey, Genworth has followed industry guidance with representing 44 hours as the estimated number of hours per week for professional inhome caregivers. Since we understand that everyone's situation may vary based on the degree of required care, you can use the Change weekly In-Home Care Hours section (located below the Cost of Care table) to adjust the number of hours from 7 hours per week to a maximum of 168 hours (24 hours of care / 7 days a week) to better represent your care needs.
Home Health Aides help those who live in their own homes instead of residential care facilities. Home health aides may offer care to people who need more extensive personal care than family or friends are able to or have the time or resources to provide.
From June through November 2021, CareScout, a Genworth company, contacted 67,742 providers by phone to complete 14,698 surveys of nursing homes, assisted living facilities, adult day health facilities and home care providers.
The survey investigated the extent to which care for a given service can shift to the home in a clinically appropriate and cost-effective way. Based on the results, we estimate that up to $265 billion worth of care currently being delivered in traditional facilities for Medicare FFS and MA beneficiaries (representing up to 25 percent of the total cost of care) could shift to the home. This represents a three- to fourfold increase in the current spend at home for this population today, although how the shift will affect reimbursement rates is not yet clear (Exhibit 3). 2b1af7f3a8
