There are several factors for seniors and their families to consider if a move to a senior living community is imminent, and one important one in many situations is finances. Paying for senior living is an understandable concern for plenty of families, but there are also a number of options often available to assist in this area.
At Avamere at Mountain Ridge, we’re proud to offer not only caring assisted living, memory care and other senior communities, but also assistance with financial themes for any senior or family considering our services. If you’re in a financial position as a family where you believe you’ll need some kind of assistance, what are your options? For seniors who are covered, do programs like Medicare and others help cover these costs? This two-part blog series will give you a primer on all these important factors, plus help you understand some of the standard average costs of senior living care so you can do some broad calculations.
It’s important to note that specific costs for assisted living, senior living or memory care communities will vary, often somewhat significantly. These fluctuations will be based on several factors, from amenities offered to the specific needs of the senior in question.
However, there are some standard services and general cost levels that tend to be somewhat consistent across the industry. The average monthly fee for assisted living in the US today is just above $3,600. That said, services can generally be customized for seniors, allowing some who only require limited assistance to pay far less than this if they don’t require a full range of services.
If your family has determined that a senior loved one requires services that are outside the family’s standard budget, there are a few programs or solutions available to assist you here:
