How much does long term care cost?

The cost of long-term care changes depending on a person’s situation, needs, and previous planning. In 2015 Home Health Care cost an average of $44,616 to $45,760. While an Assisted Living Facility cost an average of $43,200. And lastly, Nursing Home Care cost an average of $80,300 for a semi-private room and $91,250 for a private room. These numbers represent the high cost of long-term care and the challenges facing those who will eventually need it. As a result, approximately 60% of all long term care is paid for by Medicaid. An elder law attorney can help you plan your long-term care ahead of time, thereby helping you avoid excess costs and making sure than you will receive the care you need.
