Seniors that are on a fixed income or a tight budget may find that conventional senior living too expensive for them. However, there are several very nice options that provide amenities and services for seniors that are very affordable. Depending on which program you select, rents can even be as low as $300 per month, depending on your income.
An assisted living facility offers a residential option for seniors who need help and guidance in performing daily tasks. The amount you have to pay will depend on the size of the living space you choose and the type of community that you select. The average cost is around $4,000 per month but there are many things that influence the price.
Memory Care communities are similar to Assisted Living Communities but they provide residential care and are trained specifically to provide care to those who suffer from dementia. Costs can fluctuate depending on the level of care needed and amenities offered. The average cost of Memory Care in the United States is $4,650 per month.
In-home care services for seniors generally consist of non-medical assistance and caregiving to help aging adults with a variety of tasks. The extent of care and nature of services are usually tailored to the senior’s needs. The hourly rate for an in-home aide can range from anywhere between $14 to $40 per hour just depending on what is needed.
Also known as Independent living, these are communities designed for those aged 55 and up. Amenities, features, and services can vary per community. These communities allow seniors to stay active and independent while still getting assistance with tasks and maintenance. The median cost is about $2,552 per month.
Hospice care is a holistic approach intended for patients with terminal or advanced illnesses that can no longer be treated or controlled. Generally, patients will be qualified for hospice care if their physician declares that they are terminally ill and only have six months or less time left to live. Medicare almost always pays for Hospice.
A skilled nursing home, also known as a Skilled Nursing Facility (or SNF), is a physical building where people reside to receive care by aides and skilled nurses. Nursing homes have skilled medical staff, including licensed nurses and care aides that are available 24 hours per day. The average national cost is $8,288 per month.
Short Term Skilled Nursing is provided for a patient with the direct supervision of qualified health professionals such as nurses and therapists for the purpose of recovery. Short Term Skilled Nursing typically follows a hospital discharge with a fixed number of days available for the stay. Medicare pays for the first 20 days of the stay.

Selecting the best care level can be time-consuming and confusing. There is so much information about the different senior living options out there and so much of it is hard to understand. While many older adults prefer to live at home, sometimes living at home is just not a good option. And even if it is still an option, knowing who to call for care can also be challenging. Do you hire an in-home agency or maybe you need assisted living? You have to consider how medications will be handled and how meals will be handled. Certain care levels at senior communities require a certain level of ability in order for the senior to reside there. But how do you know if your abilities match the requirements of the community or care provider. While it has been said that a senior’s home is his castle, sometimes that home can be too challenging to maintain over time.
