Smaller, Residential Assisted Living Options
Noted author and journalist Paula Span wrote an insteresting piece on Assisted Living at the New York Times website recently. She explores the concept of small residential assisted living options and makes the statement:
“Among other advantages, they often cost less. At about $4,000 a month, Horizon Manor is still cheaper, unbelievably enough, than most assisted living in this pricey precinct of northern New Jersey.”
Those of us working with seniors are well aware of the costs, and even more well aware of the look on our clients faces when we tell them how much these options costs. The reader comments at the end of the article definately validate this.
