Affording Skilled Nursing Care in California

When in-home care or assisted living are no longer options for your loved one, or when a diagnosis is too much for lower levels of care to handle, skilled nursing care may be the best option. Skilled nursing care––sometimes called nursing home care––offers the highest level of medical long-term care for your loved one.

How Much Does Skilled Nursing Care Cost in California?

In California, skilled nursing averages more than $10,000 per month. For most families, this is not a sustainable cost to absorb. We can help you access resources to pay for nursing home care.
