Can you tell me what...
Can you tell me what the average cost for assisted living would be in Florida? And is it per person? For example my mother and father would like to move in to an assisted living place. All they would really require is meals included. They can do everything else for themselves.
And is it just a monthly amount or is there a huge upfront payment you must give too?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
