Assisted living in the state of Utah is legally termed as Assisted Living Facilities. Utah’s Department of Health through the Facility of Licensing and Certification and Resident Assessment is the governing body which licenses all assisted living facilities in Utah.

Assisted living in Utah is considered a place where residents can receive basic services and healthcare, not including memory and Alzheimer’s care, 24 hours a day. There are two types of ALF’s that are licensed separately.

Cost and Payment Options for Assisted Living in Utah

The cost for senior living in Utah is below the state average even at their most expensive, which does make the state of Utah one of the most affordable states to receive care. There is one thing to keep in mind when planning your assisted living in Utah and that is, these rates only reflect the base-rates. They do not include any extra care such as memory care, Alzheimer’s, Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy or any of the other extra expenses that come up in the senior’s life while in assisted living.

Utah’s statewide cost of assisted living care is $3,350 monthly, which is below the national average of $4,000. The least expensive is the city of Provo at $2,898 and Logan at $2,950. These cities are among the lowest in the country when it comes to assisted living costs. The most expensive cities in Utah are Salt Lake City at $3,600, and the next up are Ogden and Clearfield at an average of $3,893 per month.

There is currently no support from Medicaid or any Medicaid Waiver Programs for help with assisted living in the state of Utah, though Medicaid may help you pay for some of your stay at Utah nursing homes. There are ways that you can be creative when paying for assisted living. First, look at what the senior already has in terms of accumulated resources. Did they or their spouse have a career that gives a hand to them or to dependents? Were they Military personnel or maybe a firefighter or police officer? Most likely there are also national or state programs to help the elderly cover some assisted living costs in Utah, so look into those as well.

Apart from career retiree options, there are other ways to help pay for the costs, such as reverse mortgage. You could cash in on the equity of a reverse mortgage or even rent out or sell a home that has been completely paid off. There are loans for seniors that can help pay assisted living costs as well, but do be cautious in who you deal with on that level as they may come with very high interest rates.

Assisted Living Unit Regulations in Utah

All assisted living units in Utah must provide a 120 square space of floor, not counting any rooms as well as bathrooms, kitchens and closets, locker areas and any recessed rooms. 200 square feet are needed to occupy double occupancy assisted living rooms with the same restrictions as mentioned for single rooms. There may be room sharing at a maximum of 2 persons per room in an assisted living facility in Utah.

For the bathing and toileting facilities, there may be shared facilities. But this is only if the senior care facilities do not have private facilities available in the rooms. Toilets serve every 4 residents and there needs to be a tub or shower for every 10.
