Calculator for Asst Living & Nursing Care

Here is a calculator to give you an idea of various costs based on location and type of care. Once you have your number you can offset by any after-tax pension, annuity, or ss. That amount is what would need to be withdrawn from savings (plus taxes) or financed.

Thanks- I hope DS and DDIL stay in Iowa because I plan to move near them when I need LTC. Glad DS and I don't live in NJ anymore.

Can I ask what browser you are using? The form you fill in appears just fine but when I click on calculate results do not display

Apparently there are some comments below it referencing that problem. I have used Chrome and Firefox with no results

I had trouble with FF and Safari, but was able to see it with Chrome. Try reducing your font size, see if that helps.

I battled with it in MSIE and Edge, and got nothing. That's enough, I give up. If they couldn't possibly take the time to make the results available on every commonly used browser, I suspect they probably didn't take the time to find results worth reading in the first place.

It seems to be working with Internet Explorer. Chrome & Firefox still a no-go, just in case any of you are still in a mood to give it a try

Didn't look at the calculator but put my dad in a California nursing home in 2013 and it was $5500 a month for the cheapest I could find, high end was north of $8500. Pretty tough to use a calculator to figure how long you will survive with a given illness

The calculator worked the first time for me but when I tried to enter other locations, it stopped working. Gives me the left column blurred and unreadable and no cost information. Using Chrome.

The small city in Texas where most of my family lives was not every expensive for assisted living or for a private room in a nursing home. I could easily afford it. But I'm not sure I want to die there although maybe at that point it does not matter where you reside.

Did you note the fineprint at the bottom of the screen: from a Genworth study completed in 2005.

The fineprint I see says 2015 so not quite as far out of date.
