I toured lakeview Terrace. It was very clean, very upscale, and it didn't feel like a nursing home. The people at the front desk were very friendly, and the lady I met was very nice, and very informative. They were doing exercise classes in an event room, and they have a separate cafeteria. I thought the price was very...Read more Lakeview Terrace of Boulder City reviews
My mother is in the memory care unit of Lakeview Terrace of Boulder City. The staff members are very good with taking care of her, have a lot of understanding, and I can't say how wonderful they are.

Lakeview Terrace of Boulder City was a bad fit for me. It's small, did not have the outside grounds, and trying to get anywhere was a real pain. Transportation was limited, and I was one of the youngest people there, so I didn't feel nearly as comfortable. The apartment was OK, but assisted living was a wrong choice fo...Read more Lakeview Terrace of Boulder City reviews
The average monthly price for assisted living in Boulder City is about $300 lower than the state median of $3,500 and more than $800 below the national average of $4,000. Local seniors also pay substantially less than their counterparts in other Nevada communities such as Reno ($4,000) and Carson City ($4,500).

The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas
Senior care costs are affected by factors beyond geographic location. The type of care, setting and included services all play a role in the cost of care options in Boulder City and other communities across the country. Nursing homes that provide around-the-clock skilled care charge more than double the rate of assisted living facilities, even though both options offer accommodations and meals.
Homemaker and home health aide services in a senior’s private home are about $800 to $1,000 more expensive than assisted living. The true price difference ends up much higher when the value of food and housing is factored in. Rates for in-home senior care strictly cover hours of service provided, so food and household operating costs are extra expenses. These expenses are typically covered by assisted living room and board.
