New Jersey Regency Nursing Center Makes Guinness World Record for Largest Gathering of Centenarians

America's seniors are living longer than any previous generation and to prove it, a senior living residence in Somerset, New Jersey gathered 31 seniors age 100 and above and received a mention in the Guinness World Records for the largest gathering of centenarians. And, only 2 of those in attendance were men!

Babies born today have a life expectancy of age 100. Now that we know more about ways to enjoy a healthy lifestyle, it is expected that many Americans will easily reach age 110 or older. This means we will need to rethink what our retirement years will look like and how to better save money to pay for retirement care.

Medicare health insurance covers all seniors age 65 and above in the U.S.A. and does not pay for long-term care. Medicare only covers hospital stays and short-term nursing home stays for up to 100 days after a major medical incident. All long-term care must be paid for by the senior unless they have limited assets and income and qualify for the subsidized Medicaid program. 

Seniors can research nursing homes in their area and learn more about Regency Jewish Heritage Nursing and Rehabilitation Center to plan ahead for their senior care needs. As nursing homes are often an extension of a hospital stay, seniors should learn about their preferred nursing care center in their area.

Montana Nursing Home Costs and Star Ratings Updated

Montana is big sky country. And, as with many states, its population is rapidly aging. A quarter of Montana’s citizens will be 65 years or older by 2030, making it the fifth oldest state in the U.S. Luckily, Montana nursing home costs are in the bottom half of the nation’s (28th out of 50) and the majority of the nursing homes in Montana rate 4 stars (out of 5) or better.

The average annual price of a private room in a Montana nursing home is $78,475, or $6,540 per month. The average annual price of a shared room in a Montana nursing home is $73,000, or $6,083 per month.

Montana seniors and their families should understand the costs of nursing homes in their chosen area, along with their overall ratings. Hospitals will oftentimes discharge the senior to a nursing home for post-hospital stay rehabilitation. If the senior’s stay is longer than the Medicare-covered 100 days, those costs becomes out-of-pocket. Or if a senior needs 24 hour care, a nursing home may be a family’s best long-term care option.

The nursing home talk is a difficult one and most families avoid the discussion until the need is imminent. Caregiverlist believes and informed consumer is in the best position to make those critical long-term care choices. We are always updating our nursing home cost database and have released the latest costs and ratings for Montana nursing homes.

Montana takes care of their own. More than 75 Montana senior fraud victims will receive a total of $200,000 in restitution. The Montana Securities Restitution Fund, established by the Montana Legislature in 2011, helps victims of investment fraud recover a portion of what they lost. Of course, the best way to deal with senior scams is to prevent them in the first place, but we applaud Montana Commissioner of Securities and Insurance Monica Lindeen for urging the legislature to help compensate the most vulnerable of Montana’s elderly population.

Hawaii Nursing Home Costs and Star Ratings Updated

Hawaii is inarguably one of the most beautiful states in the nation and consistently makes “Best States for Retirement” lists. And why not? Not only is Hawaii lush, tropical, impossibly lovely (the very air smells of sea and flowers), but the cost of living (outside Honolulu) is 33.4% above the U.S. average. Icing on the cake? Social Security benefits and most other pension payouts are exempt from state income taxes.

But doesn’t Hawaii have the most expensive nursing homes in the U.S.? Not quite. Alaska takes the title of state with costliest nursing homes, with Hawaii coming in second, according to the Caregiverlist® Nursing Home Index. Hawaii has an average room cost of $355.50 (based on both private and semi-private rooms) to Alaska’s nursing home cost of $573.90.


Here’s a snapshot of Hawaii nursing home data:

Total Number of Nursing Homes: 50
Average Single Price: $397
Average Double Price: $314
Average Rating: 2.6

Star Rating Snapshot:
5-Star: 3

Which Hawaii nursing home has the highest Caregiverlist® rating? The Hawaii nursing home with the highest Caregiverlist® rating is privately-owned Island Nursing Home in Honolulu, Hawaii, which scores 4.8 out of 5 stars. The nursing home's semi-private room (they do not offer private rooms) costs $252.00 per day, which is significantly less than the state's average double rate of $314.

Senior care costs, especially the costs incurred by long-term nursing home stay, is something most people don’t think about until it’s too late, usually after the Medicare-paid first 100 days of post-hospital rehabilitation. But cost is not the only factor in choosing long-term care for our families or ourselves; seniors should review the ratings and costs of nursing homes in their area and then visit the nursing homes which meet their budget constraints.

A good place for families to begin anticipating future costs is by talking to a professional and coming up with a financial action plan. Caregiverlist can provide a care plan to find senior home care agency options in Hawaii and help you learn about the costs for senior care.

Nevada Nursing Home Costs and Star Ratings Updated

When I think of Nevada, I think of Las Vegas. But there’s a lot more to the state than gambling. Nevada’s aging population is one of the fastest growing in the nation. Currently, about 13% of the state’s population is over age 65. Growth in the oldest segment (85+) has increased by 78% over the last ten years, according to a report published by the Nevada Commission on Aging. And while senior prefer to age in place, many of those seniors will find themselves in need of care in a nursing home setting. only 4.1% of persons aged 65 and older live in institutional settings, but that number increases with age.

How much do nursing homes in Nevada cost? According to Caregiverlist’s updated national nursing home cost database, the daily room rate of a nursing home in Nevada is $216.21 (the state average of single and shared rooms,) or $78,917 per year. Nevada nursing homes carry average star rating of 2.7 out of 5.

Senior care planning includes understanding costs of nursing homes, along with their overall ratings. The sad truth is that the general consumer has no idea how much nursing home care costs in their area, and usually doesn’t learn of those costs until long-term care is needed.—like after the first 100 days of Medicare-covered care. Caregiverlist updates our nursing home cost database so seniors and their families can get an idea of long-term care costs in their area.

Below is a snapshot of Nevada nursing home costs and ratings:

Which is Nevada’s highest rated nursing home? The only Nevada nursing home with a 5-Star Caregiverlist Nursing Home Rating is South Lyon Medical Center in Yerington, Nevada. It receives a perfect 5 out of 5 stars in its overall Medicare star rating and its certified nursing aide hours per resident per day.

Many seniors and their families will prefer to stay at home and hire an in-home professional senior caregiver. The median hourly rate for a home health aide or CNA in Nevada is $22 per hour, but can increase or decrease depending on the location and level of care required. A quality home care agency provides all necessary liability and worker's compensation insurance protections and payroll taxes as required by law.

Alaska Nursing Home Costs and Star Ratings Updated

Where are the most expensive nursing homes in the U.S.? Not surprisingly, Alaska takes the title of state with costliest nursing homes in America once again, according to the updated Caregiverlist® Nursing Home Index. And again, Alaska wins by a landslide, with an average daily room cost of $573.90 (based on both private and semi-private rooms.) The next most expensive nursing homes can be found in Hawaii, whose average daily nursing home costs are $376.66.

Why are nursing home costs so high in Alaska? Many factors contribute to costs, especially in rural areas where even gas and electricity are costlier. Then there’s the law of supply and demand — there are simply more people vying for fewer resources. In addition to Native Alaskans living longer, non-natives who migrated to the state during the oil and construction boom of past years have decided to stay and age there, creating what experts are calling a “silver tsunami.” Who knows if Alaska’s nursing home infrastructure will be able to support its future elderly population? Right now, however, Caregiverlist data shows that the 18 nursing homes in Alaska have an average star rating of 3.5 (out of 5.)

Here’s a snapshot of Alaska nursing home data:
