The cost of senior care services and senior living ranges depends on many factors. One factor is the type of senior care community or arrangement the individual chooses. Independent living communities, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and in-home care offer different services, amenities, and environments, so the costs among these residential settings vary.
Another factor influencing the cost of senior care is the level of care an individual needs. Some older adults may be able to live independently, while others may need some assistance, and others require access to 24-hour care. The level of care a person receives influences the cost of their senior care expenses.
The geographic location of the senior care community or services provider is another factor that affects the cost. Average costs vary both by state and within the state, from town to town.
