The costs associated with Assisted Living can vary but are, ultimately, based upon the type and features of the apartment and the number of services needed by a specific resident.
At Assisted Living, our monthly fees cover the apartment, our Signature Dining service, utilities, weekly housekeeping and laundry, life enrichment activities, and many other services and amenities.
Most residents and families pay for Assisted Living with income from social security and pensions coupled with the use of savings, including the proceeds from selling a home. Long Term Care Insurance is also used to offset the cost of Assisted Living. Some consumers convert life insurance policies to a loan, and others have family members who help pay a share of the monthly cost.
It’s important to note that Medicare, other health insurance plans, and HMOs will not typically cover assisted living services. There is a specific program for veterans that may be an option called the Veterans’ Aid and Attendance Benefit.
If your resources are limited, it’s worth checking out financial assistance programs to see what options are available. Because the vast majority of residents pay privately and every Assisted Living community is different, you are encouraged to speak with someone at our community to learn more about the payment options the specific residence accepts.
Most times, the basic monthly fee covers what is necessary for your loved one to live securely and comfortably. This includes an apartment or living space, housekeeping, and laundry services. We also include many other services and amenities. If you have any questions, please contact us.
In California, Assisted Living and Memory Care communities cannot provide any medical or skilled nursing services, but communities have relationships with local medical professionals who can provide care conveniently onsite, such as Temporary Agency Skilled Nursing (VNAs), Podiatry, Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapies.
Only appropriately skilled professionals are allowed to administer medications to residents. Care staff may assist with self-administration of medications.
