You Can Afford to Live at Brentwood Senior Living Community
One of the major factors in deciding to move into a senior living community is cost. Whether you’re researching options for yourself or a loved one, the monthly price tag is often a deciding factor.
Many people assume assisted living, skilled nursing, or memory care services are too expensive. However, when compared to your current living expenses, you may find that seniors living communities are comparable. You might also find that you’ll get additional amenities and health care services that you are not currently receiving.
Average Senior Living Costs
Each level of care—whether independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing, or memory care—will differ in overall cost. Individual needs may also impact cost.
For example, the average monthly cost of assisted living services in Ohio was $4,635 in 2021, according to Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey. It was higher than the national average of $4,500 per month. On the other hand, they estimate the average cost of a private room in an Ohio nursing home facility to be $8,213 per month.
What Is Included in Senior Living Costs?
In addition to all the health care services needed for your chosen level of care, there are many more amenities available in a senior living community. These can include personal care (salons, barbershops, laundry services, etc.), physical activities, social activities, nutritious meals, etc. Safety measures for residents and 24/7 security are also included.
You won’t have to worry about lawn care or cleaning. Transportation services are often provided, as well as opportunities for day trips to malls, theaters, museums, and more.
Can you afford the cost of senior living?
There are multiple avenues you can take to afford the cost of senior living. At Brentwood, we work with your family to ensure your needs are taken care of in a way that works for you.
For example, Medicaid and private pay insurance will usually cover skilled nursing facilities like Brentwood Health Care Center. When it comes to assisted living and memory care, we accept a variety of insurances, including private pay, Medicaid waiver, and long-term care insurance. If you have Veterans Affairs benefits, those may apply as well.
