The cost of elder care

FWIW, as we approach Mother’s Day, here’s some information on the cost of elder care, i.e., various types of assisted living, and living in nursing homes. Per this NPR article, these are “the national average annual costs and daily rates paid for various types of adult care.”

For seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia, alz.org adds this: “$225 per day or $82,125 per year for a semi-private room in a nursing home; $253 per day or $92,378 per year for a private room in a nursing home; $3,628 per month or $43,539 per year for basic services in an assisted living facility.”
