Two questions we are likely asked in an initial conversation are "What does it cost?" and "Is it covered by Medicare?" Some families believe moving to a retirement living community will be more expensive than remaining at home. Many times, this is simply not the case.
Unlike nursing home costs where a portion of skilled nursing care is covered by Medicare, costs 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 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, we offer affordable retirement living with an array of amenities and programs, 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, weekly housekeeping, maintenance, transportation, cable television, WiFi and many other benefits—all included in one simple monthly bill. Here, you're better able to plan your budget, plus manage monthly fluctuating costs like gas and power.
Many families may not be as aware of their daily, monthly and yearly living expenses when evaluating retirement communities. We understand this can be overwhelming and so, created this convenient tool below to compare the monthly cost of living at home versus the alternative of living at Country Meadows of Mechanicsburg.
