Growth in Long Term Care Costs Outpacing the Rate of Inflation in Most of Michigan, According to Annual Genworth Financial Study

Study Gives Michigan Residents Access to Nursing Home, Assisted Living, Home Care and Adult Day Health Care Costs in Nearly Every Zip Code Statewide

This represents a rate of growth nearly twice that of the median annual inflation rate of 2.3 percent over the same period of time, measured using the Core CPI (which excludes food and fuel) reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In Detroit, this cost has increased 3 percent annually over the past five years, while costs in Grand Rapids have increased 6 percent annually during the same period.

With this knowledge, individuals and families can begin to prudently plan for these potential costs. The most comprehensive study of its kind, Genworth's 2009 Cost of Care Survey, conducted by CareScout(R), covers more than 14,000 nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and home health and adult day health care providers in 331 regions across America, including eight regio
