Many times the first question we hear from families is "What does it cost?" And the second, "Is it covered by Medicare?" People often think moving to a retirement living community is going to be more expensive than remaining at home. Many times, that is simply not true.
Unlike nursing home costs where a portion of their skilled nursing care is covered by Medicare, the cost for living in a retirement community is "private pay" (the resident is responsible for payment). But also unlike nursing home costs, there are different levels of care, each at different rates. At Country Meadows of Allentown, we understand every situation is different. That's why we work with residents and families to find the right living arrangement and care level for themselves or their loved one—style and size of apartment; single, with spouse or with a roommate; with no or much personal assistance.
Here, we offer all-rental month-to-month apartments with no buy-in fee. We provide affordable retirement living with a wide range of programs and amenities. Your monthly service plan includes your apartment, meals (per your level of care), social programs, transportation, housekeeping, laundry, maintenance, WiFi, cable television and many other benefits—all included in one simple monthly bill. This way, you're better able to predict and plan your budget, plus manage monthly fluctuating costs like gas and power.
In many conversations, we find families are not as aware of their daily, monthly and yearly living expenses to serve as a reference point when evaluating retirement communities. To help, we created this convenient tool below to compare the monthly cost of living at home versus the alternative of living at Country Meadows of Allentown.
Even still, there are available financial resources to help ease costs. For your convenience, we have partnered with organizations for a variety of financial options to fit most needs. Click here for those resources. Or contact us to discuss the specifics or provide additional information.
