We were lucky enough to find a place for Mom in suburban Chicago that had independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing care units. There was a buy-in, which she managed with the proceeds from the sale of her home, and a monthly fee that was low enough that she could live on her pension and social security. This place is a nonprofit, so when the resident leaves (usually feet first), the buy-in is refunded as soon as the apartment is sold . It's a very nice place, beautifully designed, and with several restaurants onsite. Mom was happy there.

They're not all sleazy.
