If you have loads of money saved, an “estate” as rich people call it, check this place out. It is between $5,000-$7,000/month for care. The place is very nice, located in Palos Heights I believe. If I could place my Mom somewhere where money was not involved, this would be my pick. But realistically, I cannot. Do the math – $7,000 over 2 years alone is over $150,000. The average life expectancy of Picks disease once diagnosed is 15 years. That would be over $1.2 million. Does that make your head spin? Save up, that is the cost for a nice long term care private pay in 2011.
