The Cost of A Nursing Home
The cost of typical nursing home care has risen to approximately $6,000.00 per month. That is too much for anyone!

Don’t sell your home for a nursing home stay. Both insurance and nursing home care are expensive and medical assistance can become quite necessary. Thinking ahead can preserve your assets, one of the biggest being your home. Did you know that 5 years before thinking about a nursing home you should have already transferred your home into another’s name? It is true, for the care needed in a nursing home they will look back 5 years and if you gave it to your family member within that time frame, you are out of luck and the bills will need to be paid from a source other than medical assistance.
