How Much Does Senior Living Cost?

When budgeting for senior living costs, it’s important to understand everything that’s included in your monthly rent. Among the key factors that can impact costs are:

Level of care needed:

Costs increase with more attentive lifestyle options. Independent Living is typically the most affordable option with prices increasing for Assisted Living, Memory Care, and Skilled Nursing services.

Services requested:

The amount of services and frequency of them will impact your price. Lifestyle options will come with a set of services included in rent, but you can often pay to add more if desired.

Amenities available:

Communities with an array of amenities to enjoy may have higher rent than local counterparts.
