Long-term care rates up 1 to 10 percent: survey,” by Kathleen Steele Gaivin, McKnights Senior Living

“Year-over-year rate increases in long-term care ranged from 1% to 10% across setting types, according to the results of Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey 2023, published Tuesday. …The average national rate for a private nursing home room inched up 4.9% to $116,800 a year, which equates to $9,733 per month or $320 per day, in 2023. The rate for a semi-private room rose 4.4% to $104,025 annually, which equals $8,669 per month or $285 per day. The average hourly rate for home health aide services has risen by 15.38% year over year to approximately $33, according to the data. Homemaker services average $30 per hour. … State-by-state information and other details of the report can be found using the Genworth online tool.”
