Cost and Payment Options for Assisted Living in Nebraska

Statewide, Nebraska assisted living base-rate monthly costs run around $3,844. That’s somewhat below the national average of $4,000 but not enough to put Nebraska at one of the most affordable. In fact, depending on where in Nebraska you live, the monthly senior living unit rental can skyrocket well above the national average. What we mean by base-rate is not including Nebraska dementia care or any specialized needs.

The least expensive assisted living you’ll be able to find in Nebraska is in Grand Island Metro, which hovers around the state average of $3,844. But, if you venture into Omaha, you will pay at least $4,285 and in Lincoln an astronomical $5,429 per month on average. If you add memory care, you will have to spend $768 to $1063 more per month. This can bring you closer to $6,000, which is not affordable for many seniors and their families. In fact, memory care costs are the second highest senior care costs other than nursing homes in Nebraska, which cost even more.

There is one option that helps pay for senior living in Nebraska that will supplement you with personal services payment, but not room and board. There are very few Medicaid waiver programs if there are any at all that will pay room and board in any given state, and Nebraska is no different. These waivers are there to do two things: one, to keep the cost to the state down considerably and two: to make sure the senior can stay at home and help themselves for as long as possible before entering either Nebraska assisted living or nursing home care. One reason serves the other. Such waiver in Nebraska is called Aged and Disabled waiver or HCBS.  There are income caps and other requirements. They are the same requirements you need to be approved for Medicaid.

Apart from any form of Medicaid, do research other options to help pay for senior living in Nebraska, such as reverse mortgage and long-term-care insurance that may accept you up to your early to mid-70’s. There is also help available from retiree benefits such as for police and fire employees. Also do not forget about military vet benefits and the numerous national and state nonprofits that will help pay for assisted living costs.

Assisted Living Accommodation Information and Regulations for Nebraska

Assisted Living Facilities in the state of Nebraska are called just that and by no other name. They are licensed by the Nebraska Licensure Unit in the Department of Health And Human Services. More than 25% of the assisted living residents contract their own personal services and there is no casual care given at unscheduled or irregular intervals.

There is a difference in square footage between old construction and new construction when it comes to Nebraska assisted living regulations. Existing construction assisted living units in Nebraska must have 80 square feet for single occupancy and for double occupancy there must be 60 square feet of floor space per each resident. In new construction, there must be 100 square feet of floor space for single occupancy senior living units and 160 square feet total floor space. None of these figures for new or existing construction include closets, bathrooms, alcoves or any recessed space or protruding space occupiers such as lockers.

The bedrooms in each Nebraska assisted living unit must provide privacy and provide ease of movement to other furniture from the bed and to seniors’ belongings. The bedrooms must be a part of an apartment unit in a separate room. In existing assisted living facilities, there are allowed 4 occupants and in new construction there are allowed 2.
