The Cost of Rose Estates Assisted Living Community Versus Living at Home.

There are a lot of misperceptions about the cost of assisted living. Assisted living communities are designed for seniors who can no longer live alone in their own home, but may need some care and support with the activities of daily living.

This blog will help you discover the truth about the costs compared to living in your own home. Many factors affect the fees within each community. The size of the apartment, the floor plan, the location of the community and the services the resident requires will all affect the total cost of living.

What Is the Average Cost for Assisted Living?

The amount of care needed is a crucial factor in determining the cost of assisted living services. Some people may only need help with housekeeping, meals and laundry, while others need help dressing and bathing. Different levels of service involve different costs.

Monthly rent is also impacted by a community’s services such as food and dining. According to Genworth Financial’s Cost of Care Survey, the average monthly cost of assisted living in the United States is $4,000. You can see assisted living costs by state, including Kansas, and by metro area at Genworth. You can also calculate future costs of assisted living and other types of care at the site.
