2-3 thousand per month could turn into 4-5 thousand per month, if your mother's health changes.you might want to consider this too.2-3 thousand sounds low.more nursing and more medications drive costs up quickly.



Thank you for the reply. We have been looking into facilities and it appears that $3,650 is the going price for the facilites that we have seen. I hadn't considered extra expenses such as medications. I will make a list of other possible expenses. Thanks again.
