Nursing home rates vary depending on need and location (they are higher in higher cost of living areas). The average daily rate for a private pay resident is about $225 per day but again can vary greatly depending on where you are looking. For example, the state of KS average is about $220/day and NYC is in upwards of $350/day for a private room.

While assisted living is not synonymous with nursing home care many families find it to be a more affordable intermediate option for their loved one.

A Place for Mom also has very knowledgable Senior Living Advisors that may be able to speak more specifically to your exact location as the one you get connected with at 1-866-568-2989 should be a resident or near the area you are searching!
