When you decide to go into an assisted living facility, you have options for the type of care you get and how to pay for it. Medicare assisted living financial help is very limited. Medicare does not typically cover long term care such as assisted living costs—but there is separate assisted living insurance. You should look into supplemental health insurance for assisted living when you are eligible for Medicare (at age 65) and comparison shop.
Be sure to research the costs of the facilities in your area and what your insurance covers. There are a number of options available beyond the standard assisted living facility. Assisted living care is not one size fits all, and there is a residential option for people who do not require care in a nursing home. The idea is to provide necessary services while allowing for privacy, independence, and freedom of choice.
