One of the most important questions people have when considering their assisted living options is: “How much is it going to cost?”
The question arises because many people assume that a comprehensive senior living environment is beyond the price range they can afford. In some cases, they may be correct, especially if their loved one needs a great deal of help with the activities of daily living. In fact, some senior living communities charge a low monthly rental price and then add costs depending on the level of care the resident requires. Examples include additional fees for transportation to the dining room, help with bathing or dressing, and medication distribution. However, Rocky Mountain Assisted Living rejects this pricing structure, which can lead to prohibitive costs for residents and families. Instead, we offer all-inclusive pricing — which means, the price is the price.
Unlike most other assisted living facilities, Rocky Mountain Assisted Living charges one set price. We communicate with you upfront to set one low monthly cost, which includes care, medications, room, and board all in one number. This means you won’t receive any surprise bills at the end of the month due to additional care, changes with medication management, or any other aspect of the resident’s stay. Price stability means that many of our residents don’t even ask for a monthly statement because their cost simply doesn’t change.
How Much Will I Pay?
Your monthly cost will be determined based on multiple factors. Since we provide both assisted living and memory care, the baseline price is first based on which of these communities you choose. From there, price can vary a bit depending on what size room you chose, whether you wish to have a private bathroom or a shared bathroom, and other factors unique to your situation.
Each of these decisions will be made prior to move-in, and the all-inclusive price will be communicated to you at that time. We welcome you to meet with our admissions director to determine which community is appropriate. In addition, we encourage you to take a tour of the facility to decide which room size you will be most comfortable in.
How Are Payments Accepted?
Rocky Mountain Assisted Living offers several options to facilitate paying for care. You may choose one of these options or a combination of multiple:
Our admissions team will also be happy to discuss Medicaid Spenddown options if needed.
What If I Run Out of Money?
Here at Rocky Mountain Assisted Living, we will do what’s necessary to work with you in the event you run out of money. There are instances, depending on space, where residents may stay for a predetermined amount of time until government financial aid program qualification occurs. Our residents’ well-being is of supreme importance to us, and our hope is that you or your loved one may continue to live with us worry-free. Before move-in, we can assist you in reviewing your available funds to determine how long you can pay for a room in our community before other options like government programs become a factor.
