When we first meet families, often their top questions are "What does it cost?" and "Is it covered by Medicare?" There can be a misperception that a retirement living community is more expensive than remaining at home. Often, that is simply 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 provide 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, three meals a day, housekeeping, maintenance, laundry, WiFi, cable television, transportation, social programs and many other benefits—all included in one monthly bill. This way, you're better able to plan your budget as well as manage fluctuating costs like power and gas.
We have found families may not be readily aware of their daily, monthly and yearly living expenses 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 Lancaster.
If needed, there are available financial resources to help with costs. We have partnered with organizations for a variety of financial options to fit many needs. Click here for those resources. Or contact us any time to discuss the cost specifics or provide additional information.
