*Assisted-living rates are for a private room with private bath and typically at least two meals per day, housekeeping and personal-care assistance.
**Private-room rates were obtained from nursing homes that are licensed, provide both skilled and custodial care, and have a private pay rate for custodial care, not the Medicare or Medicaid reimbursed rate.
***Hourly rates for home health aides were obtained from licensed (if required by the state) agencies. Typically, a home visit from a home health aide lasts longer than an hour. Home health aides assist with activities such as bathing, dressing and toileting.
