Senior care prices are largely based on the level of care provided and the number of direct service hours. Auburn nursing home care that includes around-the-clock skilled nursing is the most expensive option, while weekday adult day health services provided in a group setting are the least expensive.
All types of senior care are notably higher in Auburn due to the area’s high cost of living. A county ordinance that mandates employers pay a living minimum wage also impacts senior care rates. Assisted living costs include room and board, yet they’re about $450 lower than 44 hours of weekly in-home care services.
