Assisted Living is a type of senior housing that allows
elderly residents to lead more active, independent lives
than they can find in traditional nursing homes.
Assisted living communities are an intermediate step
between fully independent living, where a resident does
not require any assistance with the activities of daily
living, and nursing homes that provide 24-hour medical
care.
Currently there are more than 1,000,000 elderly adults
in 36,000 facilities around the nation.
ISN'T ASSISTED LIVING EXPENSIVE?Surprisingly, assisted living can be even more affordable than
living at home. Compare the monthly fee for service given the
cost for twenty-four hours of care. Depending on the level of care
provided for the resident is considered on a individual basis.
Nursing Homes, Private Duty and Residential Care Homes:
Nursing Homes $4,500.00 to $5,800.00
Private Duty
$5,500.00 to $6,700.00
Residential Care Homes
$2,800.00 to $4,000.00
