4. What is the cost of assisted living?
The costs vary across the Metroplex and each community is different depending on services offered and levels of care provided. An average room in an assisted living community in DFW would be anywhere from $4500.00/month to $9000.00/month. We work with you to ensure that the best options for your budget are presented, and you make the decision after visiting the communities. Residential rooms ( a room in a private home ) can be a more cost effective option, but may not offer the amenities of a larger assisted living community.
