When budgeting for senior living, you need to strike a balance between cost, quality of care, and value. Most assisted living and memory care communities not only provide housing and utilities, but also all meals and a full roster of individual and group activities. Another important consideration is the value of your time and peace of mind. Do you have to continually check on an aging adult, drive them to and from the doctor, or take time away from work and family to lend support? Although you may not want to apply a dollar figure to those tasks, they are a vital part of the equation.
