Average Rates for Nursing Homes Rise Nationwide

Wheel ChairNursing home expenses continue to rise with the nationwide average increasing to $91,250 per year for private and just over $80,000 for semi private rooms. However, not all parts of the country carry the burden equally with the difference between the highest and lowest cost states being $220,000. As prices are expected to rise indefinitely, estate planners should be careful to take this potentially massive expense into consideration.
