In Baton Rouge, the cost of a semiprivate room in a nursing home is approximately $1,200 per month more on average than assisted living care. This is a significantly smaller difference in cost than cities in the nearby state of Mississippi, where areas, such as Gulfport, incur nursing home care costs double that of assisted living.
Baton Rouge’s home health care costs of $3,432 may appear at first glance to be substantially lower than assisted living. Seniors should be aware, however, that homemaker services and home health aide rates don’t cover expenses often included in assisted living, such as rent, utilities and home maintenance. Adult day health care, where individuals receive care outside the home during daytime hours, is the least expensive senior care type in Baton Rouge at $2,340 per month.
