Rio Las Palmas

Review by Visitor | Consumer

Rio Las Palmas was very good. My mother said that they were attentive, and when she needed something, they were right there. They came once a week to clean the apartment and take her down to breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Her room was very nice. My mother never participated in activities, but my sisters thought that wha...

I really liked Rio Las Palmas. I thought that it was a really good value for the money. I looked at a junior studio and a 1-bedroom unit, and I thought that the 1-bedroom was quite spacious. The dining room was very nice, and the lobby was very nice, too. The person that assisted me was able to introduce me to some of ...

Rio Las Palmas was probably the best place we went to. The place was really spacious and clean. The staff was good, and they looked like they ran a pretty tight ship.

The Oaks at Inglewood

Review by George | Consumer

My dad is in The Oaks at Inglewood. It needs better management or better supervision. In my opinion, their instructions for their employees are lacking. In my dad's case, he had to pay for somebody to get him showered or give him a bath or something. But if you look at a person's duties, it doesn’t say "to shower" or "...

Assisted Living Costs in Stockton

Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care study reveals that Stockton’s assisted living costs are relatively affordable at $3,500 per month. This is $500 less than the national average and $1,000 less than the California average. Bakersfield, Madera and Modesto are the only sizable cities in the state more affordable than Stockton.

Assisted living is substantially more expensive in other areas of California. In many major cities, including Los Angeles and San Diego, seniors pay $1,000 more monthly than they would in Stockton. In Santa Cruz, the average cost of assisted living is a whopping $5,595, which is over $2,000 more per month than Stockton.

The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas

Care Cost Comparison

The monthly price of long-term care varies depending on the type of services desired. Adult day health services are significantly less expensive than other options at just $1,679 per month. At $3,500, assisted living may seem expensive in comparison, but seniors who live in nursing homes pay more than twice that amount.

Seniors who want to stay at home may consider homemaker or home health aide services, which cost an average of $4,957 per month. These options cost significantly more than assisted living, since they only include the cost of care itself. Seniors who remain at home are still responsible for household operating expenses, such as mortgage payments, maintenance, utilities, groceries and property taxes.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Stockton

Medicaid in California

Medi-Cal, California’s Medicaid program, pays for medical services for eligible residents, including children, pregnant women, low-income adults and seniors, the blind and those with disabilities. The program provides a variety of free or low-cost health services, such as preventative care, emergency services, doctors visits, hospital care, dental and prescriptions. 

Seniors who qualify for health coverage through Medicare can receive other services, such as short-term nursing care, in-home support and adult day programs, but not room and board in an assisted living facility. However, an individual may get help with this expense through the Medicaid waiver program detailed below.

Medi-Cal has income and resource requirements. The maximum allowable income is $16,146 per year for single seniors and $21,892 for couples. One-person households are permitted $2,000 in resources, while couples can have up to $3,000. Some assets, such as a home, car, clothing, household items and recreation items, are not counted toward the resource limit.

Seniors who earn too much to qualify for full Medi-Cal may be eligible for coverage with a share of cost. This means they must spend a predetermined amount of their income on medical bills before Medicaid kicks in. Those who receive SSI automatically qualify for full Medi-Cal coverage and don’t need to submit an application.

Seniors can apply for Medi-Cal by:

Medi-Cal Assisted Living Waiver

Seniors who need help paying for long-term care may be eligible for the Assisted Living waiver program. The waiver covers many services provided in assisted living facilities and other community settings, but it doesn’t pay for room and board. Covered services include housekeeping, transportation, meals, recreational activities and assistance with activities of daily living. Other ALW benefits include the coordination of necessary services and help transitioning from a nursing home to assisted living.

To participate in the ALW program, seniors must:

  • Have a medical need for a nursing home level of care
  • Be willing to live in an assisted living facility
  • Be eligible for Medi-Cal coverage
  • Have no Medi-Cal spend down requirement

Applications and assessments for this waiver are handled by five Care Coordination Agencies serving San Joaquin County, and seniors can contact their closest location. 

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

Optional State Supplementation

Stockton seniors who receive Supplemental Security Income may qualify for additional money through California’s Optional State Supplementation program to help pay room and board in an assisted living facility. For single seniors the maximum OSS payment is $412.30 per month, while couples may receive up to $824.60.

To learn more, call the Social Security Administration at (800) 772-1213.

PACE

Medi-Cal-qualified seniors may be eligible to receive medical, support and social services at no cost through the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. Those who aren’t eligible for Medi-Cal can enroll in PACE by paying a monthly premium or the self-pay rate. 

The PACE program coordinates and provides all the services needed to help a senior remain independent. Services may include medical care, prescriptions, help with activities of daily living, nutrition, dental, vision, hearing and transportation.

Stockton residents may qualify for PACE if they are 55 years of age or older and assessed as needing nursing facility care. With the help of PACE services, they must be able to live safely at home or in an assisted living facility. 

Interested seniors can contact Stockton PACE at (209) 442-6077 to learn more. 

Long-Term Care Insurance

Seniors who are worried about paying for long-term care in the future may consider long-term care insurance. This type of insurance helps pay for nursing homes, assisted living facilities, home care and other long-term care options. 

Those who apply for long-term care insurance can expect to provide details about their health history, and seniors with extensive health issues may pay higher monthly premiums if they qualify.

Seniors who need help understanding a long-term care insurance policy or filing a claim can contact Elderlife Financial at (888) 228-4500.
