1. How much does living at The Village Senior Living in Tacoma cost?
The cost of living in a senior care facility varies depending on location, level of care needed, apartment type, personal care options, and more.
Most senior living communities will charge a monthly base rate that covers your apartment, meals, utilities, maintenance, housekeeping, transportation, and activities. The monthly rate will be more expensive for higher levels of care to factor in the extra services that you will receive e.g. assisted living will have a higher monthly base rate than independent living.
The Village Senior Living is able to assist with a wide range of personal care needs – and you will only be charged for the services you require. To determine the monthly cost of your care plan, prospective residents complete an assessment provided by our Executive Director and Wellness Director.
You can learn more about the questions on this assessment on The Village FAQ page.
2. What financing options are available for Tacoma residents?
Senior living expenses are typically covered through a combination of private funds and proceeds from selling a home. However, there are potential avenues for assistance.
If you’re a veteran, you may qualify for Veterans Aid & Attendance, offering up to $2,200 per month for a veteran and their spouse, or up to $1,900 per month for a veteran without a dependent. Visit the Tacoma Vet Center, or check the VA website for more details.
Another possible avenue is utilizing long-term care insurance or life insurance policies. It’s important to consult a financial advisor when exploring these options.
If these options aren’t available for you, you may be eligible for financial assistance through Medicaid or state assistance programs. Discover the assistance programs available in Washington.
