group home for elderly

Serving Illinois and Wisconsin

In the time of Coronavirus, you may be asking yourself: what are my senior living options for my mom or dad, and how much do the senior living cost? Should I pay for a full-time home care, or find a home for my loved one in an assisted living community? First, figure out how much you're paying. We've made our Cost of Senior Living Sheet available to print.

Use this sheet to compare the cost of maintaining and staying at home vs. the cost to live in a senior living community. Remember what else included: increased socialization, freedom from demands of maintaining a home, and increased opportunities for both mental and physical activity can vastly improve the quality of life.

Senior Living starts at around $2,000 for some communities. Use our Expense Calculator on the homepage.
