In some states, that can be partially explained by the high costs of living. However, a lot of it has to do with large populations needing care. In states such as Wyoming, a limited number of nursing homes and home health aides increases costs for those who need them. The states on the “worst list” are those doing the worst at providing the necessary infrastructure for America’s aging population.

The cost of caring for the elderly is expected to increase, as the percentage of elderly Americans continues to grow.
