What is Assisted Living?

Posted by HarborChase on Jan 22, 2019 2:00:00 PM


There comes a time when many people will require help to live their lives, and this is an unfortunate and unavoidable fact. The ASHA-sponsored website, whereyoulivematters.org, states almost half of the US adults ages 65 and older either need or currently receive help already. While you may want to help your loved ones yourself, this can become a difficult and a trying issue to manage. Despite how much you may care for your elderly loved ones, you may need help, but where might you get it? You are looking for a solution that meets the needs of your loved ones while still providing them with the freedom to live their life.

How To Pay For Assisted Living

Posted by HarborChase on May 1, 2018 8:00:00 AM

At HarborChase we would love for you to be a part of one of our assisted living communities and we would love it even more if you did not have to worry about finances to live there. According to a Genworth’s Cost of Care Study the monthly average cost of assisted living in America is $3,628. This cost can vary greatly depending on which region you live in, community amenities, and individualized care needs. If you have relatively low care needs and a lifetime of savings you can pay for your cost of living out of pocket. If you have investment portfolios, you cash them out to cover costs, for example, IRAs. You can also turn to family to help share the burden of costs or share a room with a friend to split the costs. If you solely cannot afford private pay by itself, do not fret, you can combine it with other available resources.
