Currently looking for senior assisted living or other type of senior housing in NYC? If so and for those that are less experienced with dealing with senior and elderly housing options, there are a number of free resources available to help guide you and your loved one’s through the complex and complicated processes of senior assisted living placement.
What is ALP?
Most ALP programs, or assisted living programs, are generally in place to help people that are both medically and financially needy and eligible for placement into a skilled nursing facility, yet could also be placed into a more relaxed residential housing community. ALP programs are only available for those that meet specific financial and medical requirements in order to receive assistance from these types of programs.
Costs of Assisted Living in NYC-
As NYC is one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world, any and every type of housing will more than likely be higher than other lower population areas. Even within New York City there are certain areas that are much higher in terms of costs of senior assisted living compared to other parts of the City. As an example, the average cost of assisted living in the State of NY is in the vicinity of $4-6K per month. As you get closer to New York City, the monthly fee starts to increase, with some of the most expensive luxury assisted living communities in Manhattan charging upwards of $10-15k+ per month.
Does Medicaid Pay for Assisted Living Facilities?
In most cases, Medicaid will cover some of the related costs of assisted living, but will not typically cover actual housing costs of an assisted living community. In other cases, there are some Medicaid community programs along with other free resources that are available for those that are in need of additional assisted living assistance.
How to Pay for Assisted Living in NYC?
As the cost of assisted living can often seem to be cost prohibitive for many, the truth of the matter is that many people are “piecing” together their financials in order to pay for the costs of an assisted living community. Some of these options can include personal savings, normal monthly income, dividend payments, annuities, health insurance, Medicaid(limited), LTV insurance, supplemental income, retirement income and pensions, reverse mortgages, asset leveraging, bridge loans, etc. As you can see, creative financing is the name of the game when speaking in terms of paying for the costs associated with assisted living communities.
