Locally to me, these places start out at around $4500 and go up from there.
A luxury facility starting at $4500 a month? hahahahaha. My moms nursing home is costing her 10K a month, which is what she had to spend to get to “not totally horrid”. And that’s not counting actual medical care, though Medicare picks up most of that. And this isn’t even in an expensive area, just a mid-sized city in the Mid-South.
