Care Cost Comparison

Monthly senior care costs in Yuma range from $1,625 for adult day health, $3,625 for assisted living and up to $6,114 for nursing home care. The difference in care costs is based on the type of care provided with each service and what is included in the price.  In-home care options, such as a home health aide or homemaker service, cost more than assisted living based on 44 hours of service weekly. Seniors who are weighing the differences between senior care services need to be aware that residential options include the cost of room and board, which can represent a significant savings over the price of in-home care.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Yuma

Medicaid in Arizona

Medicaid is the nationwide health coverage program for low-income children, adults and seniors that’s jointly funded by state and federal governments. In Arizona, a Medicaid-expansion state, the elderly and disabled make up 19% of Medicaid enrollees. 

The Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System administers Medicaid programs in the state. To qualify for free Medicaid-funded coverage, seniors must meet specific income and asset requirements. 

Seniors who are either collecting Supplemental Security Income and own less than $2,000 in countable resources ($3,000 per couple) or earning up to $1,041 monthly ($1,410 when applying with a spouse) may qualify for either the SSI Cash program or the AHCCCS Supplemental Security Income Medical Assistance Only program. These programs provide enrollees with AHCCCS medical service benefits. 

Arizona Long-Term Care System

Seniors who require Medicaid-funded long-term care services, such as placement in a nursing facility, hospice care or home and community-based services, may qualify for ALTCS Long-Term Care coverage if their monthly income is at or below 300% of the federal benefit rate, which, as of 2019, is $2,313 per individual. 

Applicants must also own no more than $2,000 worth of countable assets, which includes all cash and bank account balances, investments and the cash value of certain life insurance policies. Non-countable assets include burial plots and prepaid funerals, a home that the applicant owns and lives in and all household effects.

Once an ALTCS applicant has been determined to meet the financial and asset limits for enrollment, they must complete a medical eligibility review conducted by a social worker or registered nurse. Seniors who meet the medical requirements for nursing home placement are assigned a case manager who may recommend one or more support services to be delivered within an assisted living setting, which can include: 

  • Skilled nursing
  • Durable medical equipment and medical supplies
  • In-home meal delivery
  • Homemaker and home health aide service
  • Medication coverage


For more information on the AHCCCS and the ALTCS, contact the Yuma ALTCS office at (928) 782-0776. 

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

VA Aid and Attendance and Housebound Pensions

VA Aid and Attendance and Housebound are two pension top-up programs offered by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs to eligible veterans and survivors. These benefits may be available to applicants who currently receive a regular VA pension and meet the criteria for either Aid and Attendance benefits or the Housebound allowance. 

Note: For the purposes of these programs, qualifying disabilities or chronic illnesses don’t need to be service related; however, veterans who already collect VA disability benefits are not eligible. 

To qualify for Housebound benefits, applicants must have a permanent disability that leaves them largely limited to their own home, which may be an assisted living facility. 

To qualify for Aid and Attendance, applicants must meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Be on bed rest except to participate in medically necessary treatments
  • Live in a nursing home to receive skilled nursing care  
  • Have 5/200 or less vision in both eyes, even with the use of corrective lenses
  • Need help daily to perform one or more tasks of daily living, such as eating, using the toilet, getting dressed and/or adjusting a prosthetic device
  • Have concentric contraction of the visual field to 5 or fewer degrees


For more information and application assistance, contact the Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services, Yuma office at (928) 726-2851.
