Cost of Assisted Living Comparison Chart
Care costs for seniors can vary depending on such factors as the type of care required and the amount of hours needed to deliver services. Monthly assisted living costs are less than half of the expense of nursing homes in Temecula, while in-home care, such as home health aides and homemaker services, are moderately more expensive than assisted living. In-home care does not include the budget for home upkeep, while residential care often includes the cost of some utilities and room and board.
