“Survey: Where assisted living is most expensive, least expensive,” by Lois A. Bowers, McKnight’s Senior Living
“Average monthly assisted living costs nationwide range from $4,136 for a studio apartment to $5,148 for a two-bedroom unit, but costs vary greatly based on location, according to the results of Lincoln Financial Group’s annual What Care Costs study, released Tuesday. … The whatcarecosts.com/Lincoln website includes long-term-care cost information for home health aides, assisted living communities and skilled nursing facilities for states and metropolitan areas across the country. Data can be sorted by type of care and geography. To see the data, enter the code ‘Lincoln’ in the upper right corner of the site.”
LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
