Eastern Star Masonic Retirement Community's Financial Options

Eastern Star Masonic Retirement Community strives to keep costs down and to stay competitive in its pricing.  According to the 2012 MetLife Market Survey of Nursing Home, Assisted Living, Adult Day Services, and Home Care Costs, the average nursing home cost in Colorado is:

  • $6420 per month for a semi-private room
  • $7230 per month for a private room

The average assisted living cost is:

  • $3551 per month

The average homemaker and home health aide cost is:

  • $21 per hour or $5040 per month for 8 hours with a homemaker per day (for a 30-day month)
  • $26 per hour or $6240 per month for 8 hours with a home health aide per day (for a 30-day month)

As you can see, assisted living still remains the most affordable option for those needing assistance with meals, housekeeping, maintenance, or more than a few hours of care service per day.  Additionally, the cost of assisted living includes 24-hour staff and service and many other social benefits home services cannot offer.
