How much does a nursing home cost?
Nursing home costs vary depending on several variables. Each nursing home sets it own rates for different levels of care, so these by themselves can range widely. Level of care is a large determinate of cost--if a resident needs more care, it will probably cost more. Also, the type of care required can have an effect on cost.
There is no true answer, or even a best guess, at what a nursing home may cost. You can spend anywhere from 1000 to 7000 a month--depending on level of care, room size, and insurance supplements. If you are trying to make a desision on a facility and cost is of concern, it is extrememly important that you visit with the facility and ask these questions.
