The cost of assisted living care can come as a shock to those investigating for the first time. Few are prepared for the expenditure that is well above that which a government pension check can cover. Furthermore, government medical plans will not assist for payment of assisted living for any but the most destitute.
Because we are in Mexico, we are operating in an entirely different economy. Some things are costly in Mexico. But this applies to manufactured goods like cars and electronics. The day-to-day items like food, utilities and medicines are much less expensive in Mexico. A good salary for a nursing aide is also much lower in Mexico than elsewhere.
As a result, we can offer rates much lower than can be asked up North. The following is a comparison the range of charges at Lakeside Care with that of the average costs throughout America. The average costs in America were compiled by the retirement planning company Genworth and published in U.S. News.
