Nevada Cost and Payment Options for Assisted Living Facilities
The state of Nevada can hardly be called the least expensive state in the U.S. for anything and assisted living is no better. Statewide, they weigh in at an average assisted living base-rate estimation of $3,500 per month. Las Vegas, one of the most popular towns in the state comes in at a whopping $4,500 per month, but there is no sticker shock there. You could find some Nevada senior living facilities (specifically in Las Vegas) at around $3,168. Reno, the next popular city in Nevada comes in at just the national average of $4,000 per month.
There is some hope for those who need help to pay for assisted living in Nevada. Not many states have Medicaid or Medicaid waiver programs that help to supplement the cost of senior care facilities. In Nevada, there is one called the Home and Community-Based waiver. There are income caps and other requirements that apply. You must also note that they only pay for personal care, errands and other needs but not room and board at the assisted living facility.
If you are in need of Nevada Alzheimer’s or memory care, it helps to note that this is not included in the base rate reflected here. Due to the extra safety and security on the assisted living facility itself and the specialized staffing, the rates could rise anywhere from several hundred to $1,000 plus per month.
If you need help with the cost of the room and board at the assisted living facility, then there may be other ways to obtain help. What was the career of the senior or their spouse? Were they in the military? Do they have a home to rent out to supplement the income? Do they have a reverse mortgage? Depending on their age, they may be eligible for long-term-care insurance as well. Many companies will accept you for a new LTC policy in your early to mid-70’s, although at this page the policy will be costly. Certain restrictions may apply for the above choices but they are worth checking out. Also, being a public servant such as a police officer or firefighter can help get financial assistance for assisted living costs.
Room Types and Regulations for Assisted Living in Nevada
Nevada terms assisted living as Residential Facilities for Groups. The Division of HealthCare Quality and Compliance oversees the licensing for these group assisted living facilities in addition to the licensing of Nevada nursing homes.
Assisted living facilities in Nevada may provide care and protection for those who do not have ambulation, have mental or limited physical disability as well as Alzheimer’s, dementia and memory care.
Nevada assisted living units must provide at least 80 square feet of living space and shared spaces must provide 60 square feet per resident. This state of Nevada is a bit unusual as it allows 3 residents per assisted living unit rather than 2 or 4.
The above required floor space is total living space, meaning that this measurement does not include closets, alcoves, lockers, or any recessed space. This may also include door swing space. The bathrooms in all Nevada assisted living units must include a sink and toilet for every 4 residents on every floor. For every 6 residents, a bathtub or a shower must be provided.
