The shock we encountered is that they are hugely expensive. Shockingly so, at least to us. Since we have no heirs and no desire to leave a multi-million dollar estate, we don't care.

Very expensive in NE Ohio. Many have an up front fee (some returnable should you die) and then the high monthly fees. You get so many meals and the rest are on you. If you eat/drink in the "lounge" you pay. All extras, you pay. And then I heard the medical care is not all it is put up to be.

As I have previously stated, I hope to stay in my house. I have cleaning twice a month, mowing/leaf removal, etc. I understand there are some very good nursing services if I should need in home care. I know I would not do well in a nursing home facility.....I'm too stubborn and want my own way...and my dogs.

Good luck with whatever you decide.
