According to Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey, the average cost of a semi-private room in a nursing home in the U.S. is $7,908 per month or $260 per day. The average cost of a private room is even higher at $9,034 per month or $297 per day. Nursing home residents are not getting the quality, dignified care they deserve.
Neglect and abuse are rampant because of the unsafe staffing. Nursing homes are understaffed, and workers are being underpaid and burning out.
