Assisted living is a popular choice for those entering their senior years. If you are considering assisted living for yourself or a loved one, you may be wondering about the associated costs. Assisted living can offer a wide range of services at a reasonable price. Here’s what you need to know about the costs of assisted living.

Services covered by assisted living

An assisted living community can offer a wide range of services to your loved one. The costs of assisted living cover full time residence, daily care, meals, housekeeping and more. When you invest in assisted living for your loved one, you will be ensuring that their daily needs are being met. 

Assisted living rates

The rates of an assisted living community may vary depending on the types of services and amenities that are provided. For example, a studio apartment may be offered at a lower cost than a two-bedroom apartment, whether they are a non-profit or for-profit community.​

Ways to pay for assisted living

There are several ways to pay for assisted living, depending on the community. Many times, residents use their private funds to pay for assisted living.
