Reviews of Assisted Living Facilities in Prescott

My mom is here and she needs more care than what they're giving her. The staff is nice. I like her room, and my sister-in-law likes it.

I like it and Its very clean and homey. My husband really likes it there. The staff is very caring and lovely. My husband likes the food very much. His room is very nice and has a beautiful view. The cost seems compatible with the services, but it's expensive.

I'm living here. The staff and the residents are very friendly. It's convenient and easy to move around. My apartment is very nice. They keep you busy with exercises, games, church services, and music. 99% of the time the food is very good. They have a lot of repeats, but it tastes really good.

My mom is doing very well at Granite Gate Senior Living and we're pretty happy. It's great and my mom is involved in a lot of events. She's playing bingo three days a week and working out with an exercise group a couple of days a week. On Sundays they go on this little getaway van which you can sign up for and go for a drive into the community and my mom is enjoying that. The place is very clean and beautiful. The food is very good. The staff is awesome. When we brought my dad back from the hospital they were just unbelievable and helpful through a very difficult time. It's just a warm and inviting environment.

It was very clean and looked like an apartment, but when you walk in the door, it's totally different. The staff during the tour was very helpful. We went to the cafeteria, we had lunch, and we got to choose what we wanted off the menu. The person waiting on us was very helpful and the food was very good. The staff was very knowledgeable, called back, and checked up on us.

We liked the homey feel and the friendliness of the staff, the view, and the apartments themselves. What we didn't like was that they didn't have a big activities structure. There was only a multi-purpose room where they played cards and stuff. It had everything my mother-in-law needed, but she can't thread a loom by herself and they didn't have any real art classes.
April 30, 2018
I liked it and the people. The rooms were really nice and I liked them. Some of them have kitchens and some don't. The one I like has a little stove and a refrigerator. They also have a nurse on staff 24-hours a day, and they give you a button to wear around your neck which you push to call the nurse. The dining area was very nice, and the food was delicious. The staff member was very good, nice, and polite.
February 20, 2018
Everything was nice. They seemed to have just about everything I needed. The dining hall was very nice. They had nice activities. They had transportation for people to get into town. Everybody seemed nice as well.
October 30, 2017
My mother lives here. She likes it and gets three meals a day, which is a big deal for her; she doesn't have to cook. She gets her apartment cleaned every week and her laundry done, which she likes. She can join church services, they have entertainment several times a week, go out shopping, and visit with each other, which she loves. She is not participating in any assisted living at this point. She's just living there. The other level is an a la carte situation where whatever you need, they provide those particular services as opposed to going up a level. They do housekeeping and laundry included in the basic price. The staff members seem very nice and accountable. There are very minor things they need to improve on, like her laundry was lost the first week and she was confused about what to do, but overall, everything's fine.

Care Cost Comparison
In addition to senior care costs varying by geographic region, they also vary widely by the level of care provided. In Prescott, assisted living is more affordable compared to other types of care. Only adult day health care is a more modest option with average monthly costs coming in at just over $1,700. Seniors in Prescott may expect to pay more for in-home care, including homemaker and home health aide services, and nursing home care. As seniors and families are evaluating the costs associated with different types of senior care, it’s important to note what’s covered by the monthly costs.

These costs are usually built into the monthly cost of care for those residing in assisted living facilities or nursing homes.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Prescott
Medicaid in Arizona
Low-income seniors in Prescott may qualify to receive health coverage at little to no cost through the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System, which is the state’s Medicaid program. This federally-funded program covers services received in a nursing home setting, as well as some personal care services received in the home. Assisted living services in Prescott, as well as the rest of the state, are covered through a Medicaid 1115 Demonstration Project waiver, which is outlined below.
AHCCCS is an entitlement program, meaning that all Arizonans who qualify for the program can receive services. To qualify, seniors must:
- Be a legal resident of the United States or a qualified immigrant
- Be permanent residents of Arizona
- Have a Social Security number
- Apply for potential income, such as unemployment, disability, pensions or Social Security
- Meet income limits ($1,041 for a single applicant, $1,410 for married applicants)
- Meet asset limits ($2,000 for a single applicant, $3,000 for married applicants)
Those whose income exceeds AHCCCS’s limits may still qualify for the program through Qualified Income Trusts. To use this program, the portion of a senior’s income that exceeds the Medicaid limit is directly deposited into a trust. A trustee is named and given legal control over the money, and the money can only be used for specific purposes, such as covering the program participant’s care services and medical expenses.
Seniors whose assets exceed the limit may spend down their countable assets by completing home modifications, such as wheelchair ramps or walk-in tubs, prepaying for funeral and burial expenses or paying down debt.
Medicaid planning may also assist those who don’t meet income and/or asset guidelines but are unable to afford the cost of their care.
Arizona Long-Term Care System Program
While standard Medicaid coverage doesn’t pay for services received in an assisted living facility, these services are covered through the Arizona Long-Term Care System program, which operates under a Medicaid 1115 demonstration waiver. Some services that may be covered by this program include transportation assistance, personal care, community transition services, housekeeping and meal preparation and delivery.
To qualify for this program, seniors must be U.S. citizens or qualified immigrants and Arizona residents. Single applicants may have an income of up to $2,313 per month and up to $2,000 in assets, and married applicants may have an income of up to $4,626 per month and up to $4,000 in countable assets. Additionally, it must be determined that they need nursing home level of care and reside in an approved living situation, such as in their home or in an AHCCCS-certified assisted living facility. Unlike most waiver programs, the ALTCS waiver is an entitlement, meaning all who qualify are guaranteed services.
To apply for AHCCCS, seniors can apply online or contact the Arizona Department of Economic Security at (855) 432-7587. To apply for ALTCS, seniors should contact the local ALTCS office at (928) 778-3968.
