What Is the Cost of Assisted Living Near Me, and How Do I Pay For It?
Traditionally the cost of senior assisted living facilities in Massachusetts are generally around $4,000 to $8,000 a month. However, if your loved one needs more specialized care, such as Alzheimer's or Dementia Care, your cost will increase to around $5,500 to $10,000 a month.
When paying for these services, most individuals initially cover assisted living expenses using their personal funds. This is mainly due to the insurance market's inadequate adaptation to long-term care requirements. Each insurance company varies in terms of coverage and payment options.
Private health insurance and Medicare do not include coverage for long-term care, leaving individuals to seek alternative solutions. One such option is long-term care insurance, specifically designed to cover these needs. However, the market for this insurance has been dwindling over time. In 2002, there were 750,000 new policies issued, but by 2016, this number had dropped drastically to only 89,000 new policies. In 2012, less than 3 percent of the population had long-term care insurance.
The U.S. Veterans Administration offers a provision in its Veterans Pension to provide additional benefits for low-income pensioners who require "aid and attendance," a category that includes assisted living.
Apart from insurance and VA benefits, individuals can also utilize private assets, such as personal savings, proceeds from selling a home or selling a life insurance policy to a life settlement provider, which converts the policy into a temporary income stream to cover long-term care costs.
