Additional Considerations:

  • Independent Retirement Centers may lease their units on a monthly or yearly basis, or may charge an “entry fee” equivalent to a purchase price, plus a monthly “service fee”. 

  • Monthly fees listed for Independent and Assisted Living Facilities are for ONE person. A couple will pay an additional fee ranging from $300 - $1000 per month. 

  • Fees listed for Assisted Living Facilities may not include some or all personal care services. These extra charges may range from $500 - $2000 per month depending upon the level of care required. 

  • Fees listed for Memory Support and Advanced Dementia Care units usually include most/all care costs. Contact the facilities for further details.

  •  Many Assisted Living and Dementia Care Facilities will admit community-dwelling persons for short-term vacation or respite care.

  • Assisted Living Facilities that accept Medicaid Waiver funding may not do so for their Memory Support units. They may restrict the number/size of assisted living units available for those seeking admission under Waiver, giving first preference to current residents who must go on Waiver.

  • Facilities that permit pets may restrict the size/type of animal, and charge a non-refundable pet deposit. Pets are usually permitted only for those residents who can independently care for the pet, and pet owners may be restricted to apartments in a certain area of the facility.
