I looked at the current board of the retirement home. The numbers given are not what I saw and they may be for a month, not the move in costs, which are hundreds of thousands of dollars.

I knew that. The buy in thing seems region dependent(or maybe dependent on state law). I have talked to the closest place to me(on a bet) and had no sticker shock. Personally, I have bought homes that would lend themselves to a personal caretaker. My choices may change in 20 years - we'll see.
