Nursing Home Expenses

Dollar Sign and Stethoscope

In Connecticut, as of 2024, a nursing home costs on average about $15,000 a month for a semiprivate room and over $16,000 for a private room! That's more than $500 a day! (Unfortunately, Connecticut is routinely the 2nd or 3rd most expensive state in the nation for nursing home care.)

This is why you must start planning early. 

There are ways to protect all that you've earned so it doesn't all go to the nursing home. But first you need to understand the rules and timing of Medicaid planning. 

Take a look at the links below to learn more about Medicaid rules and eligibility.

If a nursing facility is in the near future for you or for a loved one, you should come to see us soon. You may be able to hold on to more assets than you think - which in turn would enable you to secure a future for your spouse and preserve a legacy for your family.
