You’d be surprised at how affordable senior living can be, especially when you compare it to the day-to-day costs of maintaining a home (To compare assisted living costs to living at home, click here: Let’s Compare). Most people find that when comparing their household expenses to senior living costs the difference can be nominal.
We know how important trust is in making this decision, and want to start establishing that from the very beginning. When you consider all of your options, compare apples to apples, and know that many other providers have a lower starting rate and then add many additional costs for things like medication assistance, care, etc. We don’t do that. Our rates are inclusive with no hidden fees.
While there are standard monthly rates for each type of residence, you also have a range of service options to choose from depending on the level of day-to-day assistance you desire. Our licensed nurse will sit down with each resident and their family to do a full assessment before any decisions are made regarding additional services.
All services can also be tailored on a day-to-day basis to adjust to changing needs.
Long-term Care (LTC) Insurance and Reverse Mortgages are also important to consider during the process of finding a senior living community. For further information on LTC Insurance, click here. For further information on Reverse Mortgages, click here.
