There is such a huge range of costs for the various types of assisted living. It will depend on how much care a person may need and what type of care. Will nurses be needed? Doctors? Will they need to be watched every minute or can they care for themselves most of the time? These will affect the cost so much! You can see places that charge around $2000.00 per month and some as high as $25,000. per month and every price in between. Insurance may pay for some of the expense.
