Often a family's first question is "What does it cost?" And the second, "Is it covered by Medicare?" Some think a retirement living community is more expensive than remaining at home. Many times, that is simply not the case
To help clarify: A portion of 24-hour skilled nursing care ("nursing home costs") is covered by Medicare; the cost of living in a retirement community is "private pay" (the resident is responsible for payment). There are different levels of care, each at different rates. We work with residents and families to find the right care level and living arrangement for themselves or their loved one—style and size of apartment; single, with spouse or with a roommate; with no or much personal assistance.
At Country Meadows of Bethlehem, we offer all-rental month-to-month apartments with no buy-in fee. We provide affordable retirement living with a wide range of amenities and programs. Your monthly service plan includes your apartment, three meals a day, housekeeping, laundry, maintenance, cable television, WiFi, transportation, social programs and many other benefits—all included in one simple monthly bill. This way, you're better able to plan your budget as well as manage monthly fluctuating costs like power and gas.
We have found families are not as aware of their daily, monthly and yearly living expenses to serve as a reference point when evaluating retirement communities. To get started, we created this convenient tool below to compare the monthly cost of living at home versus the alternative of living at Country Meadows of Bethlehem.
