My mother-in-law is 87 years old and is in an assisted living facility. Her room in this facility is much like a hospital room. It has nicer curtains and a matching bedspread, but the bed is a hospital type that is adjustable. Personal pictures and mementos are around the room to make it more homey. She has a small closet for the clothing that she brought with her. She has a private bathroom with a shower, but no bathtub.She has her own TV with cable. She has a landline telephone and the call button if she needs it. The facility is fully staffed with nurses and CNA's, seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Her doctor or one of the doctors in his office stops by to check on her about once a week, unless she needs care sooner. She has limited mobility and requires, at minimum, a walker to get around. She selects her meals from a limited menu that is brought to her ahead of time. My wife and I think the food is prepared well and is of good quality, although my mother-in-law would like to have even greater variety. She can request drinks and snacks at any time, including ice creamHer initial investment in this facility was over $200,000 and her monthly costs are about $2500. This does not include the medical care provided by the doctor which she covers with Medicare and a supplemental policy.
