Comparing the Cost of Assisted Living to Remaining at Home
Future residents and their families sometimes feel surprised at the cost and the affordability of living in a senior living community. However, most do not account for how much it costs to live at home.
When adding up the cost of home maintenance and repairs, replacing significant appliances, lawn maintenance and related expenses of living at home, future residents quickly notice that a senior living community is an affordable living option. The monthly cost covers everything, which means unplanned expenses are included and never out pocket.
Often, family and prospects are unaware that staying at home often results in less independence than living in an assisted living community. For example, seniors are responsible for driving wherever they need to go or planning alternative transportation independently. When the effects of aging require seniors to give up driving, they can feel trapped, isolated and alone in their own homes.
Private homes are commonly not suited to accommodate the changes that come with aging and can be dangerous compared to living in a community.
From bathing in the shower to climbing stairs, navigating in a private home eventually becomes too much for many seniors. A move to Heritage at Peachtree means greater safety and companionship along with lower overall cost.
How to Pay for Assisted Living
We understand that tracking down the resources to pay for senior living can be a daunting task. The information below provides details about several options for you to consider.
Medicare does not pay the cost of assisted living. The only exception is when you temporarily live in a senior living community after recovering from surgery or an illness upon doctor’s orders. You can still access your Medicare benefits the same way you would if you lived in your own home, but the program does not contribute towards the room and board costs.
The rules for Medicaid can be complex since this is a state-run program. You may be eligible for assistance in Georgia if you have few assets and your income falls below program guidelines. We recommend scheduling an appointment with a local county social worker to determine eligibility for any Medicaid benefits to pay for assisted living care services.
The United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) may cover some of the cost of assisted living for those who have served our country. This benefit is Non-Service Connected Improved Pension Benefits with Aid and Attendance, but most people refer to it as just Aid and Attendance. Veterans must be over age 65 and require help with daily living activities to qualify for a monthly benefit.
The Aid and Attendance pension available from the VA is in addition to the regular monthly pension for veterans. You may also hear the VA refer to this as a housebound benefit. The VA requires you to meet at least one of these criteria to qualify:
- You need assistance with daily bathing, dressing or eating.
- You spend a large portion of each day in bed due to illness.
- You have minimal eyesight even with corrective lenses.
Long-Term Care Insurance
If you already have a long-term care insurance policy, you can access it to help pay for assisted living care expenses. You must have purchased the policy before moving into an assisted living community, and there may be a waiting period for benefits. Each long-term care insurance policy is different, so ensure the benefits available to you before depending on the coverage.
Personal Savings or Assets
Many people turn to their finances first before accessing other benefits. We recommend that you research everything potentially available to you before committing your funds to pay for care. Some possibilities to consider when using personal financial resources include your savings account, retirement account or pension, selling stocks and bonds, proceeds from selling your home or gift money from family.
