The average monthly cost of assisted living varies by state. Find out what the average is near you. For example, monthly costs for assisted living in Arkansas are quite a bit lower than those in New Jersey or Connecticut. While you may not be interested in relocating to a new state to save on senior living costs, it is helpful to know what the averages are near where you live.

When you're touring assisted living communities, be sure to ask for lots of pricing details. Ask how they compare to other options in your area. Find out whether there's a fee to move in, and what's included in the base price and what's extra. Also be sure to find out how costs might change over time.

Here's an at-a-glance comparison of costs by state:
