The cost of assisted living services in New Hampshire has a large range. In addition to the type of licensure, the type of accommodations and amount of personal care and medical care required will affect the total cost.
Assisted Living care delivered within a Residential Care Home offer light assistance with Activities of Daily Living, medication reminders, all meals and are staffed 24/7. Old New England homes are the setting for most of these programs, making it difficult to accommodate those whose mobility is compromised and need to use assistive devices and/or are unable to manage stairs. Accommodations vary between private or semi-private bedrooms, some with the option of a private bathroom, others only semi-private bathrooms. The average monthly rent for these types of communities is $3500-$5000. These communities are not able to care for those with progressed forms of dementia, those not oriented to time and place and/or who may unknowingly leave the property and not be able to find their way back.
The cost of Assisted Living care delivered within a Supported Residential Care Program within a larger community setting is significantly more expensive and predominantly private pay. Accommodations range from companion apartments, studios, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom apartments. A handful of communities offer a flat rate based on the type of accommodations while others use both the accommodation and amount of personal and medical care a resident requires to figure the monthly rate. Average starting monthly rates(minimal care ) average $5000 for companion suite, $6500 for studios, $7000 for 1 bedroom and $8000 for a 2 bedroom.
