Costs of Senior Living
Many factors come into play when deciding on the right senior living community for you. And while each person’s list of ‘must-have’ amenities might vary from one to the next - affordability is certainly a line item on everyone’s list.
When comparing the cost of senior living to your current living situation, it’s important to remember the intrinsic value of what senior living communities have to offer.
It’s not only how many meals are included in your rent each month, but also the intrinsic value of sharing a meal with neighbors.
Getting out of the house and eating a freshly prepared meal in the company of others, instead of having (another) frozen dinner on the couch. Developing new friendships, learning new hobbies, becoming part of a community. Most budgets don’t have a line item for these assets. These are all fundamentals in maintaining your independence, and your overall health and wellness. Priceless.
