Location Matters! A Survey of Nearly 7,000 Home Health Care Providers, Assisted Living Facilities and Nursing Homes Revealed Stark Differences in Cost for Long-Term Care Services Based on Geographic Location

In addition to HHAs, the cost of nursing home care differed greatly across the country. For example, residents of Lafayette, Louisiana are spending an average of $118 a day for a private nursing home room, while residents of New York City are spending five times that amount, at an average of $590 a day. The national average was $210 a day in the markets surveyed.
