Market Survey of Long-Term Care Costs The 2011 MetLife Market Survey of Nursing Home, Assisted Living, Adult Day Services, and Home Care Costs October 2011

In 2002, the MetLife Mature Market Institute pioneered the collection of national market survey data on nursing home, assisted living, and home care costs. Since then, these market survey data have been updated and released on an annual basis. In 2007, cost information on adult day services (ADS) was included for the first time.

This market survey, conducted in conjunction with LifePlans, Inc., contains daily private-pay rates for private and semi-private rooms in licensed nursing homes, monthly base rates for assisted living communities, hourly rates for home health aides from licensed agencies and agency-provided homemaker companion services, and daily rates for adult day services across the United States. Geographic areas reported are for state Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA), and a randomly selected sample of service providers or facilities not already identified in the MSAs (“Rest of State” areas). Costs for this survey were calculated for each service provider in an area and were aggregated across all providers to compute a statewide average cost
