Arizona Assisted Living Styles to Choose From

Arizona has that dry heat that’s heaven sent to those who are aging and have respiratory issues. It’s long been known to be the state that physicians will send patients to for healing. At $52,052 per year required for assisted living in Arizona, the need to have a really good pension is a necessity for older adults living in Arizona. The Office of Assisted Living oversees the licensing for the available types of senior living throughout Arizona and their statistics below.

  1. Adult Foster Care: Serves up to 4 people and the caregiver lives on site at all times.
  2. Assisted Living: Serves 10 people.

The room sizes vary greatly between the types of assisted living centers. For Adult Foster Care, you may have a private home with 4 bedrooms. If you go to a larger assisted living center, they may have choices ranging from one to two bedrooms that may be mixed private and semi-private.

Payment Resources for Assisted Living in Arizona

If you are looking for ways to pay for assisted living in Arizona, there are certain options available.

When looking at Medicaid programs for seniors and retirees in Arizona, you’ll find a program called Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System. It’s a managed HMO. The portion you’ll want to look at is the Arizona Long - Term Care System. This program is only used for Adult Daycare, at-home care and in skilled nursing homes. There are specific boundaries of care and it has strict requirements for disability.

 

Medicaid won’t pay for room and board at an assisted living facility in Arizona, so you could look at other options and determine if they apply to you or your loved one. If the senior is a veteran, a public servant such as a firefighter or police officer, there may be programs available for them to use toward room and board along with their social security and pension plan. Nonprofit organizations may be available in Arizona to assist with some costs for assisted living. You may also be able to find a nonprofit assisted living home in the area. Another good option to look at immediately is long-term care insurance to cover the costs of Arizona assisted living. However, many insurance companies will not allow you to purchase LTC insurance coverage past a certain age.

For most states, you won’t get much in the way of Medicaid to help pay for assisted living. These programs are set up to serve those with the greatest need such as disabled seniors and retirees. For those that need extra assistance, Medicaid is geared to keeping Arizona seniors in the home as long as possible. This frees up the beds in skilled nursing facilities because most seniors end up there well before their time.
