As you near retirement age, it is time to start considering senior living options. What do you want to do when you retire?
Give serious consideration to where you would like to spend the remainder of your life. There are many options. Once you retire, senior living arrangements can encompass retirement communities and assisted living facilities, among others. Your medical condition will determine which option is right for you. Retirement communities often require you to provide documentation proving you good health. Assisted living facilities, on the other hand, are standing by to help you as your health fails. If independent living is no longer a safe option, assisted living may be.
Retirement communities are often very reasonably priced. Some retirement communities are government subsidized and offer living space on a sliding scale. Other retirement communities may cost a bit more, but that will depend on their location and level of service. While retirement communities do not offer health services, they do often offer entertainment in the form of social activities and exercise. Neither Medicare nor Medicaid will help pay for retirement communities, but Medicaid may help with assisted living facilities. If you need more help than is available at a retirement community, assisted living facilities are often the best option. However, at a starting price of $1,100, you may need assistance to cover the cost.
