Consider your preferences.

What is the difference between assisted living and nursing homes? There are three main distinctions: the level of care provided, living arrangements, and cost. For example, in an assisted living environment, you may need help with transportation, medication management, or specific daily activities, such as dressing and personal care, but you can still live independently. By contrast, nursing homes provide a much higher level of medical care and around-the-clock supervision. Additionally, assisted living communities offer a feeling of fellowship — which can be ideal for older adults looking to stay active and connect with new friends.

Find value in extra support.

How much does assisted living cost? As we age, most older adults will eventually need outside help for certain activities like house cleaning, transportation, lawn care, grocery shopping, and personal care. Hiring a home health aide and housekeeper can add up. According to Genworth, in 2020, these services alone average $9,000 a year!

With that in mind, assisted living can be a very affordable option. The price will vary based on the community you choose, the type and size of your living space, and your individual care needs. So it’s important to understand everything that’s included in the assisted living model.

Take time to find the right fit.
