Cost of Living at an Assisted Living or Home

It is also important to understand that living at an assisted living community is financially equal to living at home or cheaper. If an elderly require assistance is bathing, toileting, medication assistance, and preparing food an at home care assistant is needed. Additionally, the expenses of utilities, food, mortgage/rent, and miscellaneous (trash removal, repairs, maintenance, social activities, telephone and cable) exceeds the cost of living at home than at a reasonably priced assisted living community that will enhance quality of life.  If staying at an assisted living community improves quality of life and decreases the risk of injuries that generally occur at home, without supervision, the cost of living at an assisted living community is dramatically less than compared to living at home. Many families wait until something terrible happens before they move their love one to an assisted living.
