Initially some families ask "What does it cost?" and "Is it covered by Medicare?" They anticipate moving to a retirement community will be more expensive than remaining at home. This is simply not the case with most families.
Unlike nursing home costs where a portion of 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 care level and living arrangement for themselves or their loved one such as style and size of apartment; single, with spouse or with a roommate; with no or much personal assistance.
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, weekly housekeeping, laundry, maintenance, transportation, cable television, WiFi and many other benefits—all included in one simple monthly bill. This way residents and families are better able to plan their budget, plus manage monthly fluctuating costs like gas and power.
We also find many of these same families are not as aware of their daily, monthly and yearly living expenses when considering a retirement community. That said, we created this convenient tool below to compare the monthly cost of living at home versus the alternative of living at Country Meadows of York-West.
If needed, there are available financial resources to help ease costs. For families' convenience, we have partnered with organizations for a variety of financial options to fit many needs. Click here for those resources.
