When Do I Need An Assisted Living Facility?

The answer: when you cannot live independently and require a certain degree of assistance. Sometimes you can forgo an senior living facility and remain in your own home if you obtain assistance by family members or a private caregiver. However, eventually most seniors will require a degree of care beyond what family members can provide. Also, private caregivers on a 24-hour basis can cost more than $14,000 per month, so an assisted living facility may be a cost-effective option. In short, seniors require an assisted living facility when they need assistance with the daily activities of living and cannot obtain this degree of assistance from other sources of care.

Why Is Assisted Living So Expensive!!!

A lot of people are surprised/dismayed at the expense of assisted living. Assisted living in Santa Rosa, CA can be very expensive. In fact, some Santa Rosa assisted living facilities charge over $8,000 per month. Why are these assisted living facilities so expensive? Answer: because they are heavily staffed. Quality assisted living facilities are staffed 24-hours per day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Excellent caregivers do not come cheap either. Think of the cost of assisted living like this: a private caregiver available 24 hours a day would cost approximately $14,000 per month. In light of that, some assisted living facilities are not overly expensive. If you need help finding a quality assisted living facility within your budget we recommend that you contact Julie at Accessible Elder Care Placement Agency by calling (707) 237-2750. She can help you find assisted living at no cost to you.

The few assisted living facilities that take dementia residents may be expenssive. Call a free placement advisor like Julie at Accessible Elder Care at 707-237-2750 to get some help finding an assisted living facility that can provide memory care.

Know Assisted Living Costs

Many people are surprised by the true cost of assisted living. Many assisted living facilities have hidden charges. Wild rose care home doesn't want you to be surprised by your assisted living bill so pay attention... READ YOUR ADMISSION AGREEMENT. Many assisted living facilities try to slip in hidden charges in this document. For instance, many different charges for personal care may pop up in your admission agreement.

Great Santa Rosa assisted living facilities will be transparent with their charges.
