Often times the first two questions we are asked are "What does it cost?" and "Is it covered by Medicare?" Families often think moving to a retirement living community will be more expensive than remaining at home. And often, that is not the case.
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. 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 affordable retirement living with a wide range of programs and amenities, all-rental month-to-month apartments and no buy-in fee. Your monthly service plan includes your apartment, meals (per your level of care), social programs, laundry, maintenance, housekeeping, transportation, WiFi, cable television and many other benefits—all included in one simple monthly bill. With this, you're better able to predict and plan your budget, plus manage monthly fluctuating costs like gas and power.
Families may not be as aware of their daily, monthly and yearly living expenses for 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 Hershey.
If needed, there are available financial resources to help with costs. For your convenience, we have partnered with organizations for a variety of financial options to fit most needs.
