New reports from Caring.com now show which states offer the highest-quality elder care for the lowest costs.
Their study assembles data from over 100,000 community reviews, as well as Genworth’s 2015 Cost of Care Survey, the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, and the Long-term Scorecard, a joint effort by AARP, The Commonwealth Fund and The SCAN Foundation.
According to their findings, South Dakota tops the list of the 10 best states for aging. Following behind are Iowa, Minnesota, Alaska, Oregon, Colorado, Hawaii, South Carolina, Nebraska, and Wisconsin.
Worst states to grow old start with Alabama and progress upward through Ohio and Pennsylvania (tied), Mississippi, Rhode Island, Indiana, Kentucky, New York, New Jersey, and West Virginia.
