When you are considering assisted living for yourself or a loved one, cost can be one of the most influential factors in the decision-making process. The cost of an assisted living facility will vary based on its location, amenities, services and accommodations. As you begin the process of finding the best care for yourself or a loved one you may want to know what programs or resources may be available to you.
Each person’s situation is unique to them so we do not offer standardized advice. There are, however, additional resources that may help you in this decision. Each of our professional community administrators can answer specific questions you may have.
While Medicare does not cover the costs of assisted living facilities or long-term care facilities it can, however, cover qualified healthcare costs while you or your loved one is living at a certain facility. Medicare is more often used to pay for a skilled nursing facility or home health care. There are always exceptional circumstances that will allow Medicare to cover different types of care, but in most cases Medicare won’t cover the costs of “custodial care.” Learn more here.
