What is the average budget per resident per month?

Recommended Posts

 
I am back in the game after 10 years. I have forgotten so much. Can anyone share the amount of money you get per resident?

Thank you!

 

 

I don't go by per resident, I go by census and a monthly budget. I am a 107 bed facility, but we are down beds. So Lets say I am at 97 beds, my budget has been $400 a month for supplies, food/cooking, etc and $100 a month for entertainment. Hope this might help a little bit (???).

We too are based on census... Skilled nusing gets .14 per day per resident. So in a 31 day month it's like this. 42 residents x 31 days x .14 = 182.28 for the month. I do not have a seperate budget for entertainment.

 

Hope that helps

I am budgeted by census. .30 x # of residents x # of days in the month. I ususally average about $600 per month and I love it compared to other facilities. Although it sometimes does still not seem like enough.

I too am based on census. I get .15 per resident per day. So we're a 99 bed facility but are usually only at about 91. That equals out to 4.50 per resident for a 30 day month.

I get $700 per month, for 6 Memory care, 10 AL, and 15 Skilled nursing residents, so 31 residents. That's $22.50 a month per resident, or 75 cents per person, per day. That sounds like a lot but it's not; because we're an "upscale" for-profit place. So they expect everything to be really high end (no cheesy decorations or crafts). AND, we don't get donations of anything hardly ever because we're not in need.

 

I spend $200 of it a month for two performances by a guitarist/singer who is worth every penny. The rest goes to bingo candy (sugar free is SO expensive!), party supplies and decorations, and the biggest money eater is staff meals on AL outings. We go out to eat 4-7 times a month, and while I do pay for everyone upfront, the resident's meals are charged back to them on their monthly bill. (There is NO way I could afford that, these people drink $10 glasses of wine at lunch and always have to have a dessert! They easily spend $35 on lunch EACH!) BUT, I do have to take my meal and my driver's meal out of my budget. Since we go to kind of ritzy places, that takes a bit of money. Our limit is $15 each at lunch at $25 each at dinner, and we get pretty darn close every time, since these places are pricey and also once you consider tax and 20% tip. So I might spend as much as $200 a month for our meals on outings. Ouch.

 

I don't know anyone could manage on $200 or less a month...I guess you just get by. But I'm also guessing you're a "traditional nursing home" and people's expectations are not sky high like they are here.

My budget is $50 for 16 RCF and 60 skilled....definitely   not enough..I fundraise monthly to add to my working budget. Thank goodness we have several volunteers that provide music and church service. I have one band that charges $20 a month to cover their gas as we are out in the middle of no where.  I would love a budget of $250 a month  to take the stress off  fundraising and I don't think that is unreasonable. I have 2 socials a month which the kitchen provides most treats for. Decorating for the socials comes out of my pocket most of the time. Bingo is 2x a week with candy and prizes.
