Currently, 16% of Norway’s population is over the age of the 65, with that percentage expected to increase to 25% by 2050.  Currently, home care services for this significant portion of the population is organised, managed and financed by the municipalities.  This does not mean that the burden of financing home care does not fall on the user,  users may have to pay a fee for some of these services and the size of that fee can vary based on the municipality in which the user lives.  Additionally, institutional care, while cost shared with the municipality, can be up to 85% of a user’s income.  For families looking for consistency throughout the care continuum, while keeping their loved ones independent in their own homes as long as a possible, private home care services, such as those offered by Right at Home, are appealing alternatives those services provided publicly.
