Rhode Island Nursing Homes

Rhode Island, like nearby Pennsylvania is well regarded for featuring lower than average price skilled nursing facilities as compared to other states in New England such as Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York. While rates are still costlier than other parts of the nation, Rhode Island nursing homes provide reasonable rates with quick access to many of the best healthcare facilities in the U.S.

Rhode Island is also attractive to many seniors based on its dynamics. The smallest state in America also only supports a little over one million residents, making it prime real estate for elderly care facilities in Rhode Island that want to be away from the crowds. Yet with nearby access to other parts of New England, Rhode Island can quickly connect you to friends and family that live in other metropolitan areas such as New York City, Philadelphia and Baltimore.

Rhode Island Nursing Home Costs

Rhode Island nursing home costs are impressively not outrageous. The average semi-private room goes for $255 per day. Compared to the national average, it is only slightly higher at $225 per day. And especially when compared to neighboring states, residents at Rhode Island retirement homes can save anywhere from $35 to $75 per day on a semi-private room.

One problem with Rhode Island is the small population, and therefore the limited selection of nursing homes in the state. That state of Rhode Island does have a fairly limited supply of short-term care, rehabilitation and long-term care facilities compared to other states. Less than 90 fully staffed nursing homes in Rhode Island are available, so you may face some competition and lower room availability.

If you or a loved one is interested in Rhode Island long term care but do not have a good understanding of where to find quality nursing homes, the best suggestion is to start with the bigger communities. Unfortunately, Rhode Island does not have many sizable cities. In fact, the largest city in terms of population, Providence, only has 175,000+ people. Warwick, Cranston and Pawtucket are the next nearest in terms of population and similar in size. They all provide a decent selection of quality Rhode Island elderly care facilities.
