While a senior living community located directly across the road from a major medical center is major selling point, that convenience and piece of mind does come at the price of overall tranquillity as it does make the campus a little more noisy and busy than it'd probably be otherwise, but that takes away nothing from...Read more LifeStream at Thunderbird reviews
My adopted mother lived here for about 8 months and they never made sure she brushed her teeth or recognized when something was wrong with her. She had pneumonia and a UTI and when we visited her we had to point out that she was not feeling well. The CNA's are very friendly but the lady that runs this place (Jody) is n...Read more LifeStream at Thunderbird reviews
The rooms at LifeStream at Thunderbird were nice but a little bit on the small side and they didn’t have a washer and dryer. We liked the exterior rooms because they had nice views of the courtyard and the pool. The staff was good, and everything there looked nice. The place was well kept and clean. The residents were ...Read more LifeStream at Thunderbird reviews
I visited this facility for the first time and I was unsure of what I would find as I had been given a variety of reviews, both good and bad, from different people. From the moment I walked in I noticed how open and bright the facility was and it was super clean, but not uncomfortably so, where you feel afraid to move ...Read more Desert Sky Assisted Living reviews

This visitor was able to see that several residents had homey decoration...Read more Desert Sky Assisted Living reviews

Cost of Assisted Living Comparison Chart
The cost of senior care in Glendale varies substantially depending on the type of service received. Nursing home care costs nearly twice the amount of assisted living, and homemaker services and home health aides, which allow people to stay in their homes, are also more expensive than assisted living. These rates make assisted living in Arizona an attractive option for seniors with limited funds. Adult day health care, costing on average $2,167 per month, is the least expensive type of care.
Cost of Homemaker/Home Health Aide Comparison Chart
Arizona’s Medicaid program is called the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System. It’s run as a section 1115 demonstration waiver and provides health care insurance for seniors 65 and older who don’t need nursing facility care. It also coordinates with other programs to provide long-term care services in facilities such as nursing homes and assisted living centers.
To be eligible for AHCCCS, seniors must:
There is a division of the AHCCCS called the Arizona Long Term Care System (ALTCS), which is designed to assist seniors in arranging and paying for long-term care services when needed. It’s an entitlement, so there are no enrollment caps, and everyone who qualifies receives service. The program provides long-term care in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, adult day cares and senior’s homes.
To be eligible for the ALTCS program, participants must:
There are also monthly income caps, but they vary depending on the applicant’s marital status, whether they live independently or with caregivers, and if their spouse has applied for or is receiving Medicaid. Once accepted into the ALTCS, participants are assigned a caseworker to help them devise a care plan that is suitable for their unique situation.
Seniors can apply for ACCCHS online or call (866) 495-6738.
Veterans Aid and Attendance Program
Veterans Affairs offers a supplemental cash program called the Veterans Aid and Attendance Program. It’s available to veterans over 65 who need assistance with activities that include medication management, bathing, dressing, grocery shopping and meal prep. To apply, seniors must submit documentation of wartime service. They must have served at least 90 days of active duty during wartime and been honorably discharged. If they’re under 65, they must be totally disabled. For those over 65, there is no disability requirement. Single surviving spouses of such veterans are also eligible.
Financial requirements for the program are complicated, so applicants should contact their local VA benefits office for help in applying. Call (800) 827-1000 for more information about this program.
Assisted Living Bridge Loans
Elderlife Financial is an organization that offers loans to seniors who have an immediate need for assisted living funding. This can be helpful for seniors who are waiting for a home to sell or to be approved for benefits. Elderlife Financial provides up to 12 months of payments to individuals and families. The funds can be taken as a lump sum or as a line of credit, and if taken as a line of credit, borrowers will only pay interest on what is used.
Multiple borrowers may sign for a loan, placing less weight on individual credit scores. The company requires information on the source of anticipated funding, and because the family of a senior usually applies, their health and age are not a factor in approval. The approval time is fast, sometimes within 24 hours. For more information, contact Elderlife Financial Services at (888) 228-4500.
