If you’re in need of memory care which is called dementia and Alzheimer’s care in Arizona assisted living centers, you can assume a $600 to $800 jump in cost. So, you should start planning for between $2,000 and $4,000 per month and go from there.

The room types vary between facilities. Adult Daycare, Assisted Living, Adult Foster Care are all available in Arkansas. This range will serve from 4 people in senior foster care to assisted living which can vary in size. The standard is 2 persons only allowable with a minimum of 150 square feet and 230 sq ft per 2 occupants. This is for new construction assisted living apartments throughout Arkansas. Depending on individual needs and condition, the stove may be disconnected or removed but all senior assisted living units in Arkansas will be equipped with cooking appliances, small refrigerator and microwave. The kitchen will be a specific and separate room from the rest of the apartment. All rooms will be easy access. These are just some of the minimum requirements for assisted living centers in Arkansas.

Payment Resources for Arkansas Assisted Living

Arkansas, like most states, does not have the support of Medicaid nor any supplementary programs for assisted living centers. There’s some help for Adult Daycare but the Medicaid system is designed to take care of those with disabilities and those in a nursing facility or with a caregiver at home.

Most times the senior has to investigate the options outside of Medicaid and Medicaid supplementary programs for most states. This means getting creative about their personal situation and looking for the appropriate nonprofit or personal resources they may have. For example, veterans and their dependents may have supplements coming in that could be used for Arkansas assisted living centers. They may not pay directly but if the cash is available for use in their healthcare or in any way they deem necessary, this could be helpful. Public servants may also have resources to pay for the senior care costs in Arkansas. There are nonprofits in all of these sectors that can answer your queries.

Alternatively, there’s long-term care insurance that with the right firm can be paid into quite late in life. Do you have a life insurance policy that can be converted to help pay for assisted living costs? These are the alternatives that many Arkansas seniors and retirees have had to rely on.

Assisted living in Arkansas is much like other states especially in terms of Medicaid programs being unavailable. However, with a little creativity ahead of time, you can make it much easier to cover the cost of assisted living in the state.
