Navigating the Financial Aspects of Senior Living

Through helping thousands of families over the years, we understand the confusion and complexities families face when determining the right senior living community for their loved one. Navigating the various levels of care and the associated costs can be stressful for everyone involved. Cost if one of the biggest concerns for family members, which is why we take pride in making the process as smooth as possible through our extensive knowledge about all available financial resources. Here are a few: 

U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ Aid & Attendance Program: The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ Aid & Attendance program provides benefits for veterans and surviving spouses seeking care at a senior living community. Our Sales Directors have extensive training about the A&A program and can assist you and your family with any eligibility questions you might have.

Long-Term Care Insurance: Long-Term Care insurance policies offer care not generally covered by health insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare. Individuals who require assistance in at least two Activities of Daily Living such as bathing, eating, dressing, walking, etc. may qualify for benefits and these policies can be used to pay for senior living care as quickly as day one. However, like life insurance the premiums associated with these policies increase as we age. Speak with a financial advisor, accountant, or insurance broker about the options available.
