WhereYouLiveMatters says the national average cost of assisted living is about $4,051 per month, according to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2019. The average assisted living cost per day is about $133 per day. The average cost of assisted living per year is about $48,612 per year. However, you will also be expected to pay a one-time community move-in fee ranging anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000. According to the survey, the cost of assisted living is expected to increase by an average of 3% annually.
However, not every resident can expect to pay the same amount. According to an article on Caring.com, “A resident who doesn’t require any specialized care can expect to pay less… if a person needs hands-on care, such as help getting around, feeding themselves, or takes a great deal of medication (six to seven prescriptions is often the threshold), the cost increases subsequently.”
