We are in Neighborcare at Chapel Hill. It's a great place. We love it. It's beautiful. Our room is very nice and clean. Everything's clean, nice and brand new. The food is great. We have a swimming pool, an exercise room, a place for therapy, a library, a laundry room, and a cafeteria. Everybody's nice, excellent, and professional.

I'm at Southpointe Healthcare Center. We don't have rooms like in the assisted living. It's basically 100% care here, and they have nurses on-duty. It's pretty much like a nursing home, and I'm here for long-term care and rehab. Due to my stroke, it kind of took away my ability to walk. They say I will walk again with proper therapy, but they don't have a timeframe on it. The rooms have a flatscreen TV, a small closet for clothing, a dresser and drawer, and a nightstand with two drawers, so it's not very big. There are at least 25 rooms on my wing, but they have three different wings. They serve our meals, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and they have snacks available. They provide non-refrigerated items like chips or something like that, and they provide drinks like soft drinks, and coffee in the morning. They take care of your medication, and they assist with getting out of bed, and showers two times a week. They have on-site therapy, a beautician on-duty, and there's a bathroom in our room with a mirror. The occupational therapist helps me pretty much to shave, and the CNAs assist you with bathing twice a week. We have fun activities, card games, and bingo. There's a big screen TV, and they allow us to congregate in the dining hall and watch different movies, but we've been quarantined to our rooms for the last month. They also stated that there were zero cases of Corona patients here. They're giving us the nasal swab testing twice a week. They're pretty adamant about keeping it to where it is, and we don't allow visitors right now. It's a beautiful place, clean, and nice. The food is pretty much what you can expect. It's like a hospital setting in here. I'm only 55 now, and this is not how I want to live even if it's not long term. If there was a senior assisted living apartment community situation here, I would stay. It's not bad, it's just to my mental therapy, I'd like to be in a more home setting. There's a skeleton crew as far as CNAs and QMAs, but other than that, the quality of care is above average. There aren't enough people to answer all the call lights in an expediate manner. Other than that, if they had full staff, this place would be rated a 5/5. I don't have anything bad to say about it. The staff is very respectful, cordial, understanding, and patient with you, but we have to be patient with them too because they don't have full staff to answer everybody's call light in a fast manner. They don't really season the food here because they have lots of people with hypertension and diabetes. The food is good, but it could be a little bit better. It's easily accessible, the lawn is kept up to par, and there's no trash on the parking lot or on the grass areas, It's well maintained.

I visited this facility

My mom and I went to Neighborcare for a little brunch thing they had. They just took us to another room and we looked at the photos there. It looked pretty decent and decently priced. I liked that they include all the utilities in the monthly payment. The staff was very, very nice. We didn't really look around the actual property so I don't really know, but the building was very well maintained. They did tell us some of the amenities and stuff that they have. They told us they have a swimming pool, they have a ballroom, a wash room, and a laundry facility. Can't really think off the top of my head, but yes, they told us they have a swimming pool.

Neighborcare at Chapel Hill have kept their commitment; they keep their promises. They are very systematic in making sure that the necessities are met. I would give them a five out of five because they were immediately direct in what their philosophy was and their promise, because I am 62 and I was raised in the hero generation that promotes brotherhood. Regardless of what particular family you're in, you're still a brother treated as a brother, even when you speak to a stranger. My apartment is very, very well kept. The area here is enough to fulfill anyone's needs because the one thing you would have to have would be your entertainment, a bed, and a chair; everything else is available for you. You have a kitchen, you have a dining room, you have a bathroom, you have storage units in here, and you have a lot of people here that use the brotherhood clarifications when they communicate. The staff I would give a five because I've had previous engagement with different locations and they didn't have a problem processing my information. The other locations were computerized and they had hesitations. They offered me some food for lunch and breakfast. Like I said, they have been respectful to the request that I made.

We used Home Instead Senior Care. They would bathe my husband as necessary, they did shopping for me when I broke my ankle, light housekeeping and companionship. The caregiver was always on time, I had no problems at all, the scheduling was fine, but the billing wasn't. The caregiver was a 5.

I visited this facility

We visited The Harrison. The exterior could use a little sprucing, but the inside was fine. It's an older facility, but it's being kept up well. The residents seemed happy and content. The gentleman who gave me the tour did a good job and answered all the questions I had and concerns. The room was older designed. They worked on some trying to modify it and keeping it updated.

Care Cost Comparison

As shown in the Cost of Assisted Living comparison chart, location can greatly influence the cost of senior care. Another major factor is the type of care required. In Indianapolis, the cost of skilled nursing care averages nearly $2,000 more per month than assisted living. When comparing assisted living with home care, home care appears to be significantly less expensive (about $700 to $1,200 less a month). However, it’s important to consider what kind of home care services are needed: homemaker services, home health aide services or both. It’s also necessary to weigh other costs related to staying in your home, including rent or mortgage payments, general maintenance and unexpected repairs. The cost of assisted living generally includes most of these expenses. Cost of Homemaker/Home Health Aide Comparison Chart

  • Assisted living: $5,053
  • Homemaker services: $3,813
  • Home health aide: $4,362
  • Adult day health: $1,733

Medicaid services are available to low-income seniors in Indianapolis with incomes under $1,041 per month for an individual or couple, and a maximum of $2,000 (single) or $3,000 (couple) in assets.

The A&D waiver provides an alternative to nursing home admission and covers services in certain Medicaid-approved assisted living facilities. The D&A waiver is not an entitlement program, and waiting lists are common.

In order to qualify for assisted living services under the A&D waiver, residents of Indianapolis must be willing to live in a Medicaid-approved assisted living facility, have a monthly income of $2,313 or less and countable assets of no more than $2,000. Participants must also be assessed and found to need at least the level of care provided in nursing homes, which is assistance with three or more activities of daily living.

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

Indiana Residential Care Assistance Program

Residents of Indianapolis who cannot live alone but don’t need skilled nursing care may qualify for financial assistance through the state’s Residential Care Assistance Program. RCAP funds can cover room and board, food, laundry and select services such as care coordination in contracted assisted living facilities.

To qualify for RCAP, Indianapolis residents must be at least 65 years of age or blind or disabled and a current Medicaid recipient or participant in the federal Supplemental Security Income program. They must also be willing to move to an Indiana assisted living facility that has an approved RCAP contract with the Division of Aging.

Typically, RCAP facilities help applicants complete the eligibility process. However, an applicant’s family, guardian or advocate may also complete the RCAP application, which is available online.
