I don't know how much nursing homes or assisted living homes cost.
But if you could get cruises at about $100/day, then you could live aboard for $3,100 or so a month. That would include all your food and entertainment.
Add to that $10/day for tips.
However, at nursing homes or assisted living you would have caregivers if you needed them. People to help you shower, or move from bed to chair, etc. You would have access to hospitals and doctors.
On a cruise ship you'd be on your own with little personal assistance other than room service.
The main problem, as I see it, is that cruise lines could not afford to turn their ships into virtual nursing homes, because the income they derive from alcohol sales, excursions, casinos, gift shops, photos, etc. would go waaaaaaaaay down.
