Whereas studio rooms constitute the majority of Memory Care living-option, Assisted Living and Independent Living are mostly offered as 1-bedroom units.

Hence, in order to compare the relative pricing of these living options, we have combined the studio and 1-bedroom options. During the first 6 months of 2023, the average monthly asking rent for Memory Care (studio & 1 bdr) was $7,730, representing premiums of 52% and 74% over Assisted Living and Independent Living, respectively.

Please note that the Senior Housing sector lacks transparency as pricing is not available online for most facilities. Our tracking sample size is fairly small - currently 100+ facilities of the ~30k facilities across the US.
