Taking the step to look into older adult care or a senior living community for yourself or a loved one is already a difficult decision to make for many. Alongside the possible uncertainty of uprooting an established lifestyle, senior care can have considerable expenses. The national median annual cost of an assisted living community for an individual was around $54,000 in 2021. While that number might make you balk, Ebenezer Senior Living features a variety of affordable senior care services from subsidized low-income housing and care to community-based options. Read on to discover how Ebenezer can offer financial help for seniors.
Adult Day Programs
Ebenezer’s Adult Day Programs are perfect for seniors living at home who want the opportunity to get out more and meet new people, or for those who want to see how they’d like participating in a senior living community without actually moving in just yet. These programs offer scheduled activities like meals and outings as well as a daily exercise program for seniors throughout the week, with many locations even offering transportation options. Both full- and half-day programs are available for a fee, and activity calendars are available online for future planning.
Stay by the Day
Stay by the Day apartments are another option for seniors looking to get a feel for an assisted living community or for full-time caregivers who have other obligations. This program provides guests with short-term personal support at several different levels of service in order to meet individual needs. It’s a cost-effective way to take advantage of the benefits of a senior living community.
Care at Home
If you need some extra assistance in your daily life but still want to live at home, Ebenezer’s Care at Home program may be the best option for you. Through our partnership with Accent Care Fairview Home Care Services, we’re able to offer you customized health care and services in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
Ebenezer is proud to offer several options for subsidized low-income and affordable housing at many of our locations. Additionally, some of our Assisted Living and Memory Care locations accept Medicaid home and community-based service (HCBS) waiver programs. Additionally, for seniors who do not need assisted care, Ebenezer offers low-income housing communities federally-subsidized by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). If you qualify for our affordable housing program, it’s a great option to take advantage of.
We hope these financial tips were able to ease some of your worries surrounding the expenses of transitioning to a senior living community. For more information, check out Ebenezer’s blog or our affordable housing page.
