The rising cost of long-term care, coupled with an increasing array of options, can make it difficult for families to find the best, affordable care. The calculator below can assist with that process by estimating the cost of long-term care. Options include expenses for care in a nursing home, assisted living facility or adult day care, and use of a home health aide or homemaker service.
Simply select your state and region along with the type of care needed to get your estimate. You can even compare costs in one state and region with another. The calculator will give you a total cost estimate.
