Finances

We understand that an important factor while making the decisions around if and where to go for senior living community is cost. While you would want your loved one to get the best of amenities and the best of care, the expenditure that comes along with those services can be a concern as well as an important factor while choosing the right community.

While working out the appropriate cost, do keep in mind the current cost that you might incur while taking care of your loved one at home. Costs at home include food, groceries, utility bills, taxes, maintenance or rent, entertainment, healthcare, travel, insurance, and home caregiver costs, to name a few. We suggest that you start with adding all these costs up on a monthly/weekly basis to arrive at the current costs that are being incurred. This figure will come in handy when you compare it with the costs at senior living. The difference in the costs can give you an idea of the cost associated with the facilities, care and amenities.

Did you know that some veterans are eligible for some benefits that can help you with the payments for assisted living? Also, their Medicare might cover senior assisted living expenses. Check out this link for more information.
