Alzheimer's Facts

Long-term nursing home care is costly and can easily drain one’s finances in a short period of time.  In 2011, the average cost for a private room in a nursing home was $248 per day, or $90,520 per year. The average cost of a semi-private room in a nursing home was $222 per day, or $81,030 per year.  Approximately 80 percent of nursing homes that provide care for people with Alzheimer’s disease charge the same rate regardless of whether or not the individual has Alzheimer’s.
