Sunny Palm Springs, California is a desert jewel, known as a relaxing resort town in the Sonoran Desert. Though its resort roots go back to the turn of the 20th century, Palm Springs hit its stride as a destination in the 1960s. To this day it is known for its mid-century modern architecture. In its heyday as a seasonal resort town, Palm Springs attracted vacationing Hollywood movie stars who enjoyed the warmth and sunshine. Plentiful pools, golf, and relative seclusion (at the time) made it a perfect spot for peaceful relaxation

If your loved one requires nursing care, or has diagnosed Alzheimer's or dementia that has progressed to a certain point, they might need a skilled nursing facility. Skilled nursing facilities—sometimes called SNFs—are the ideal choice for those who don’t need hospital-based care but do require more specialized care than can be provided at home.
We strive to provide you with the best cost data available: when we can, we provide Seniorly data on the cost of senior living communities. If we don’t have that data, we default to Genworth, who has been tracking the cost of care for 17 years in the US. However, even Genworth occasionally lacks specific data for certain cities. In the case of Palm Springs, California, Genworth can only provide a median for the closest area in which they have data: San Diego area, at $9,384. Generally, the higher a city’s cost of living, the higher its skilled nursing facilities’ monthly fees. There will be at least some variation within Palm Springs SNF’s costs, as they might provide slightly different types of specialized care, or be located in more or less crowded or desirable neighborhoods.
