Assisted Living vs. Other Types of Care

At $4,215 per month, assisted living fees are less than half those of nursing homes, where the average is $8,882 for a semiprivate room. Seniors who prefer to remain at home will need to add home maintenance costs to the overall figure to get a true impression of costs. Consequently, although adult day centers charge the lowest fees of around $1,430, the senior’s total outlay will be higher. This is especially true for seniors using homemaker and home health aide agencies, as both charge higher fees than assisted living, at $5,720 per month.

  • Assisted Living Facility: $4,215
  • Homemaker Services: $5,720
  • Home Health Aide: $5,720
  • Adult Day Health Care: $1,430
  • Nursing Home Facility (semiprivate room): $8,882
