FINANCIAL RESOURCES & PLANNING

What Are The Average Costs of Senior Living?

Costs of senior living can vary widely based on what part of the country you live in and the level of accommodations. Depending on your location, living in an Independent Living community can cost from $1,500 to $5,000 a month, and seniors residing in Assisted Living facilities have a monthly average cost ranging from $3,500 to $10,500 a month. Due to the higher level of services required, Memory Care will cost between 20-30% more than Assisted Living.

Helpful Financial Resources

Once you’ve found the right fit, the next step is to get your financial plan in place and identify your sources of funds. Depending on the type of care needed, different sources of payment may be involved. For example, Medicare will not pay for Assisted Living but may pay for part of Post Acute Care stays. This article lays out some options and tips for families paying for care. After determining sources of payment, making a new monthly budget based on your new rent is a good step. As so many things are included in your monthly rent, you may be pleasantly surprised at how much you are saving in home maintenance, insurance, utilities, food costs, etc.
