Senior Lifestyle Expenses to Expect in Assisted Living

Most assisted living communities offer an all-inclusive price model, so you don’t have to worry about additional unexpected resident lifestyle expenses. Senior living communities will work with your budget to find a living option that best works for you with the services and care you need. It’s a good idea to start by looking at your current cost of living, including all expenses you incur at home, for food, transportation, and activities. Then you can compare those side by side with the monthly costs of different levels of senior living to see what the best fit is for you.

To learn more about how senior living allows you to live a full resident lifestyle for one fixed cost, call our team today at 903.329.6520 and schedule a tour to see how your senior lifestyle can look in person.

The Cost of Assisted Living

When you compare your current monthly expenses, you will likely find that assisted living monthly costs are significantly less. If you are transitioning from independent living to assisted living within a senior living community, you can expect your fixed costs to go up because of the added help you will need with daily tasks like bathing and dressing, as well as managing medication.

At Westminster Place, we try and make the process of calculating your costs for senior living quick and easy. We offer our Calculate and Compare tool to help determine how your current expenses per month compare to living at our facilities in Longview, Texas. To use the tool, simply fill in the blanks with your monthly living expenses, and the tool will generate a report showing a side-by-side comparison of your current expenses and our senior living costs.
