The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas

Care Cost Comparison

Arkansas has some of the lowest costs for senior care in the country, thanks in part to the state’s relatively low cost of living. Nursing home care, which provides seniors with 24-hour skilled nursing care in a specialized, licensed residential facility, is the most expensive option. Assisted living costs about $1,200 less than nursing home care does, while in-home options such as a homemaker or home health aide are slightly less expensive than assisted living. 

To compare the true cost of different types of senior care, it’s important to recognize that residential services include room and board. Seniors who opt for in-home care are responsible for ongoing living expenses such as food, utility bills and home maintenance.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Hot Springs

Medicaid in Arkansas

Over 65 million low-income Americans receive free basic health care coverage through Medicaid, the nationwide program that’s jointly funded by the federal and state governments. In Arkansas, about one in five residents is on Medicaid, and 65% of Medicaid expenditures in the state go toward services for the elderly and disabled. 

The Arkansas Medicaid program is administered by the Department of Human Services. Seniors 65 and older who meet income and resource eligibility requirements may qualify for Medicaid funding for personal care services in a level II assisted living facility through the Living Choices Assisted Living waiver, a Home and Community Based Services program. 

Living Choices Assisted Living Waiver

To qualify for the ALW, seniors must be at least 65 years old, be legally blind or have a permanent physical disability and prefer to live in an assisted living facility instead of a nursing home. This waiver is available to seniors who require the level of institutional care offered in an intermediate nursing facility and meet at least one of the following criteria: 

  • Need an extensive amount help to eat, use the toilet or transfer
  • Need help performing at least two activities of daily living
  • Receive a score of three or greater on the state-approved cognitive performance scale
  • Receive a medical assessment indicating significant changes in health or end-stage disease

Seniors must also earn no more than 300% of the current maximum Social Security Income, which is $2,313 for a single applicant and $4,626 for a couple applying together. Resource limits of $2,000 per individual and $3,000 per couple also apply. Cash, stocks, bonds and all real estate except the applicant’s principal residence are counted, while personal belongings such as clothing, one vehicle and an irrevocable burial trust are exempt. 

If approved for the ALW, seniors are responsible for the room and board portion of assisted living fees, and the waiver covers the cost for one or more of the following services:

  • Personal care
  • Medication management and administration
  • Skilled nursing
  • Recreational programming
  • Homemaker services
  • Transportation assistance

Note that there are statewide enrollment caps on the ALW, and seniors who meet the eligibility requirements may be placed on a waiting list. 

For more information about Medicaid and the ALW, contact the Choices in Living Resource Center at (866) 801-3435. 

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

  • Suffer from concentric contraction of the visual field tested at 5 or fewer degrees
  • Need help from a caregiver to complete one or more activities of daily living such as bathing, grooming, dressing, toileting or managing a prosthetic device

  • $26,766 for a veteran with one dependent
  • $14,509 for a survivor without dependents
