Understanding your financial options

When it comes to budgeting for senior care, our experts can provide support and guidance.

Planning for senior care 

In some cases, families and individuals can plan for the possibility of a move to independent or assisted living. Oftentimes, the need for increased assistance, subacute rehabilitation or skilled nursing care may arise unexpectedly.

Planning in advance for senior living provides the opportunity to better understand the pricing structures for each level of care, and the financial investment required. Additionally, it allows time for you to consider your income, assets and other options for financing senior care.

Here are some of the assets to consider when building a budget for independent living, assisted living or long-term care. For the most complete assessment of your financial options, we encourage you to contact one of our communities directly.

Common considerations:

  • Social security income
  • Retirement accounts (401K or IRA)
  • Savings
  • Real estate

Other options:

  • Medicaid
  • Long-term care insurance
  • Life insurance and loans
  • Veteran’s benefits
