Retirement can be expensive, and your location makes all the difference. For instance, in 2009 the average monthly cost for nursing home care was more than $5,000 dollars. Similarly, the cost for a home health aid for a single person in 2008 was $19 an hour, and assisted living facilities averaged at just over $3000 per month. In Oregon specifically, assisted living communities cost an average of $3,880 per month, and nursing home care can be much more expensive.
Villages offer a more cost-effective retirement option for aging populations. Membership in a Village that can provide a multitude of services to ensure an elderly person’s happy and healthy life is offered at a fraction of these prices. One Village here in Portland, Eastside Village PDX, offers memberships on a yearly basis ranging from $540 for a single person to $780 for a couple.
The cost of Villages in comparison to other aging options, combined with the services they offer and the ability for the aging person to remain in their own home, makes Villages the aging solution of the future.
