Abstract

This is a tabulation and comment on statistics regarding the average monthly charge for care in resident establishments (average monthly charge was $186 per month excluding approximately 3% of the residents who had made initial payment for lifetime care). In general charges increased with age and amount of care provided for individual patients. The charges were higher for women in all age groups. Regionally average monthly charges ranged from $213 in the northeast to $16 in the south.
