Assisted Living Care Costs

How much does assisted living cost? Discover what the annual, monthly or daily costs are in your state via today's post. How much does assisted living cost? It depends on where you live and how many services or daily care hours your loved one needs.

Genworth, a long term care insurance provider, offers an interactive map of the country so consumers can compare costs nationwide. Click on a state or region of interest, and it will load these results: the annual cost of a private one-bedroom apartment in assisted living, the annual costs of a semi-private and private nursing home room, the annual cost of adult day care, and the annual cost of home care, both homemaker services or those of a home health aide. If you prefer, you can also view the monthly or daily breakdown of these costs. Go to the tool.

Here’s a snapshot of annual assisted living care costs in several states:

  • In California: $42,000 for a private, one-bedroom apartment
  • In New York: $44,400 for a private, one-bedroom apartment
  • In Illinois: $48,678 for a private, one-bedroom apartment
  • In Texas: $38,400 for a private, one-bedroom apartment
  • In Florida: $33,000 for a private, one-bedroom apartment


Bear in mind that these are state averages; depending on what region of the state you’re in (a metropolitan area versus a rural area, for example), costs can vary.

    Really nice map! I like these useful informations. We actually have a senior relative we need to find place with assisted living in California. We spent a lot of time searching for the informations and after reading a lot of articles and webpages we decided to use the LA Home for the aging. We really appreciate the atmosphere of this place and the staff as well. I only hope that there will be more places like this when we are old.
