What’s the difference between assisted living and a nursing home?
Assisted living gives you the helping hand you need to keep active, stay engaged, and pursue your passions. You’ll live in a beautifully designed apartment home and receive assistance with the basic activities of daily living, tailored to your specific needs, such as help with bathing, dressing and grooming, medication management, and personal maintenance. Nursing homes, on the other hand, are for those with chronic medical conditions or disabilities, or those in chronic pain, who require 24-hour care and supervision by licensed skilled nursing professionals.
How do families typically pay for assisted living?
There are a variety of options families use in order to help pay for assisted living. Below are a few that you may want to consider:  
  • Long term care insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Veteran’s benefits
  • Sale of a home
  • Bridge loan
  • Annuity
We suggest you consult with a financial advisor to discuss which would work best for your family.
