It is important to know what services and supplies the assisted living facility provides and what might be hidden extra costs. Private duty nurses are very seldom included in the cost of assisted living homes. Cost for extras, such as hair shampoo or conditioner, can be exorbitant.

Ask questions and be informed in advance.
