What Expenses may or may not be covered by an Assisted Living Home:
When looking for a place for your loved one, you want them to be comfortable, as well as receive the best care possible. You want the world for them in their last stages of life. So not only do you have to worry about the quality of care, but how to financially take care of them is also a concern.
The hope is that a majority of elderly people have money they can access during this time. Some resources could be from selling their houses, retirement money they have saved over time, having help from pensions, medicaid or family. However they plan on paying for their care during their golden years, it can still be a concern if all their needs will be covered.
