The Cost of Assisted Living in Nevada

The average cost of assisted living care in the state is just $3,750, but despite the low cost of long-term care, Nevada ranked 50th overall on The 2022 Senior Living Report. Nevada’s low score is based on a number of factors, including the above-average crime rate, traffic congestion in urban areas and the fact that the state has only 57 physicians per 100,000 residents, 20 fewer than the nationwide average. Fortunately, assisted living facilities have around-the-clock staff and high-tech security systems to keep residents safe, and most senior living communities are located well away from the crowded streets of Nevada’s bustling cities.

According to Genworth’s 2021 Cost of Care Survey, Nevada’s average monthly assisted living rate is $3,750, which is $750 below the nationwide average. Median rates are much higher in neighboring California, where assisted living care costs an average of $5,250 per month. Just south of Nevada in Arizona, the same type of care costs around $4,000 per month, while in Utah, the median assisted living care rate is $3,500. Northwest of Nevada, fees are significantly higher in Oregon, where assisted living residents pay an average of $5,045 per month.
