The Cost Of Assisted Living And Senior Care
If you would like to know how much the different types of long term senior living costs you can be assured there is much information available.
According to one U.S. government source, the average cost of long term senior care and assisted living ranges from about $36,000 to around $72,000 per year. And in some cases the average can be over $250,000 per year. The average monthly cost of adult foster care and small senior homes in the U.S. is somewhat lower, roughly $2,500 a month to about $4,500 per month. If you think that is a wide difference you are correct. Why such a big difference?
That’s easy to answer. It is because there are 50 states in the U.S. and probably about 100 different Kinds of Long Term Care, or senior homes and senior living, depending on the state. Each of those different kinds of senior living has a different cost associated with it. That’s right, the kind of care and where it takes place makes a big difference in the yearly, and of course monthly cost.
'The national median monthly rate for a one-bedroom unit in an assisted living facility is $4,300 per month’ according to the latest Cost of Care Survey released by Genworth Financial Inc. of Richmond, Virginia. That's $51,600 per year, an increase of about 50 percent over the year 2013.
