Only adult day health services ($1,712 ) are less costly, but they only provide limited care during daytime hours at a group center. Higher priced homemaker services and home health aides ($3,813) don’t cover the expenses usually included with assisted living such as rent, meals and utilities. Around-the-clock skilled nursing home care is the costliest option at an average of $6,753 per month.
