What is the cost of a room in a nursing home in Copenhagen?
For a single old age pensioner with no other income the price for living in a nursing home is on average DKK 1500 per month.
There are fixed rules for calculation of the actual rent, and the price depends among other things on:
- Your financial situation (income). If you have other income than your state pension (for example interest income), your rent will be higher than for a pensioner with no other income.
- The size of the room/apartment.
- The running costs of the nursing home.
How do you pay for living in a nursing home?
The costs of living in a nursing home (rent, electricity, heating, food, laundry etc.) will automatically be deducted from your pension.
If the rent is high, you can apply for a supplement to your rent. The size of the supplement is based on your other income.
