Well, you should be…it is expensive at most places! But here’s the good news. There are ways to make this healthy living care affordable.
First, Medicare provides a New Choices Waver opportunity that will pay for a good portion of the monthly care costs for Assisted Living for persons who are selected to receive that benefit. See the following link for information and application dates: http://www.health.utah.gov/ltc/NC/NCHome.htm
Second, the Veterans Administration will assist in paying some of the costs for Assisted Living. If you are a Veteran, contact your VA Center for information and assistance.
Third, by choosing carefully, you can select an Assisted Living Facility that provides what you need at an affordable price. There are some wonderful facilities out there that provide lots of “bells and whistles” for living. They’ll charge for elaborate facilities, large properties, many residents (and minimal ratio of nursing aid to resident ratio), extras for nursing care, meal plans and other types of assistance. So, look carefully and see what your budget allows….and what you really want to find in a facility.
