The decision to move a parent into an assisted living community can be hard for any family, but the process is made much easier by keeping some basic steps in mind -- starting with an open conversation
With a significant portion of our country’s population aging faster than at any other period in history, it’s the perfect time to discuss how countless families (including yours) can afford quality senior care for loved ones
While there are many similarities in the care, facilities, and activities in both assisted living and independent living, recognizing the differences between these communities is the key to finding the correct home for your loved one.
The cost to live in a senior living community ranges widely, but you can expect to pay between $2,000 to $12,000 or more a month. The majority of communities will fall between $4,000 to $8,000 in monthly fees, but this will depend on a variety of factors including the size of the apartment, the type of services needed, and the location of the senior living community.
