You could be the most fiscally responsible person alive, saving money wherever you can, utilizing coupons, and even cutting out things you really want, but don’t need. Once you’re retired and living on a fixed income, finding a way to afford quality care and housing can be increasingly stressful.
As mentioned in an earlier blog, the Sandwich Generation is upon us. People are having children later in life and the Baby Boomers are nearing retirement. This means that there is a large group of people that are going to be tasked with paying for their elders’ care needs and their kids’ college tuition simultaneously. This is a daunting financial debacle for anyone – no matter your income bracket.
Because of this, we’re seeing a trend of elders not enlisting in senior care homes until they absolutely need to. Most of the time when this happens and it greatly expedites the process – we’ve helped families find housing within four days! However, similar to shopping for a house, we recommend visiting many places and revisiting ones you like. For many families though, this simply isn’t an option.
As a result, many adult children end up taking care of their loved ones, but the amount of stress this can put on a family is palpable – you don’t need to look far on the internet to see the number of articles on senior caregiver stress.
Luckily, Concierge Care Advisors have a solution.
Affording Senior Care Homes on Medicaid
If you or your loved one is in the low-income bracket or Medicaid and struggling to find an Assisted Living Facility or similar senior care home within your budget, then contact us immediately. Many people begin to see what’s initially available to them and they fear outliving their assets and winding up in a place that’s more “homely” than a home.
With Concierge Care Advisors, we have built strong, foundational relationships the senior communities we affiliate with. So much of what we do is based on trust and we wouldn’t be the leaders in senior housing and elder care if we weren’t dependable.
As a result, we make it much easier for you to find a senior care home you can actually afford. Many of our affiliated elder care communities will accept private pay for the first few months and then offer a discounted rate so that your Medicaid will cover the rest.
Plus, this isn’t including all of the potential benefits you may be missing. For instance, it wasn’t long ago that Mary Cordova met a woman who was eligible for Veterans Benefits, but had no idea. This was something, her first senior housing community should have told her or she would have had over $1,000 additional funds every month!
So, if you’re looking for affordable senior care homes, then contact us. Every senior housing community is put under severe scrutiny to ensure that they will provide top-notch care for their residents. Our job does not end after an elder has found a home that speaks to them, but we actually check back in and make sure everything is going well.
When you need help, we’re here for you.
