The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas
In Toledo, senior care costs range from $1,192 a month for adult day health services up to $6,874 a month for nursing home care in a semiprivate room. This wide difference in pricing is based on the type of care, hours of service and location.
Nursing home care is the most expensive option because it includes 24-hour residential care in a skilled nursing facility, while assisted living is $2,574 less largely because medical care is not included. Homemaker and home health aide costs are about $200 to $300 less than assisted living based on 44 hours of service a week; however, in-home care does not cover room and board as residential senior care does.

Medicaid is the government-funded nationwide health protection program that provides emergency, acute and long-term health care to low-income Americans who would otherwise be unable to afford health insurance.
