Assisted Living Costs in Worcester County

Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care study documents average monthly senior care costs throughout the country. The study shows that at $5,735, assisted living in Worcester County is significantly more expensive than the national average of $4,000 but only slightly above the state average of $5,495. 

With the exception of Pittsfield ($4,200) and Springfield ($4,950), assisted living prices throughout Massachusetts are above $5,000 per month. Costs are highest in Boston ($5,850), the largest city in the state. 

Note: Senior care cost data wasn’t available for Worcester County, so data for Worcester, the county seat, was used. 

The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas

Care Cost Comparison

Senior care costs in Worcester County range from $1,441 a month for adult day health services up to $11,710 per month for care in a semiprivate room in a nursing home. Assisted living costs $5,735 per month, while in-home care costs between $4,767 and $5,148 for 44 hours of weekly care. 

When calculating the true cost of remaining at home it’s important to factor in the ongoing expenses involved. Seniors who opt to stay in their home continue to pay for groceries, utilities and property taxes on top of their care costs, while these day-to-day living expenses are included with assisted living care. 

Senior Care Cost Comparison Chart

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Worcester County

Medicaid in Massachusetts

Low-income seniors in Worcester County may qualify for free health coverage through MassHealth, the Massachusetts Medicaid program funded by the federal and state government. 

MassHealth provides a variety of benefits, including doctor visits, home health care, nursing facility care and hospital services. Additional benefits, such as dental and vision care, case management, physiotherapy and preventative health programs, may be offered through state-specific waivers. 

For free MassHealth coverage with access to long-term care services, seniors must have a monthly income of $2,313 or less and own no more than $2,000 in countable assets. If only one spouse in a married couple requires care, any income earned by the community spouse is disregarded. 

Certain assets are not counted under Medicaid rules, such as a home worth no more than $878,000 that the applicant and/or their spouse use as their principal residence. 

Personal Care Attendant Program

Seniors with permanent disabilities who qualify for MassHealth coverage may be eligible for self-directed personal care services through the MassHealth Personal Care Attendant program. 

The PCA is available to seniors who need help performing at least two activities of daily living. Seniors may be assigned up to 50 hours of personal care services weekly depending on their medical needs, and PCA participants can hire friends and family members to provide care giving services. 

Moving Forward Plan Waivers

The Moving Forward Plan waivers are home and community-based waivers designed to help fragile seniors return to the community from an institutional setting, such as a nursing home. 

To qualify, seniors aged 65 or older must have been in a nursing facility for at least 90 days, qualify for MassHealth coverage and be able to live in a community setting, such as assisted living, with MFP supports. 

MFP services are assigned on a case-by-case basis and may include personal care, community support, a homemaker, rehabilitation therapy and skilled nursing care. 

For more information on MassHealth, the PCA and the MFP waivers, contact MassHealth Customer Service Center at (800) 841-2900. 

Other Financial Assistance Programs for Assisted Living

Massachusetts State Supplement Program 

Seniors aged 65 and older who qualify for federal Supplemental Security Income benefits may be eligible for additional cash assistance through the Massachusetts State Supplement Program. Some seniors who don’t qualify for SSI due to excess income may be eligible for SSP benefits.

SSP benefits are based on the applicant’s income and living arrangements, and recipients who receive SSI benefits are paid the SSP benefits on the same day. 

For more information contact the SSP client assistance line at (877) 863-1128. 

Program of All Inclusive Care for the Elderly

Seniors who have been certified by the State as needing the level of care provided in a nursing home may qualify for enrollment in the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly

PACE is a managed care model that provides client-centered medical, social and wellness services that allow seniors to receive care in a noninstitutional setting, such as their home or an assisted living facility. 

PACE services are delivered through an interdisciplinary team consisting of physicians, nurses, rehabilitation specialists, activation workers and personal care workers. Each participant is provided with personalized services based on their individual care plan, and most PACE programs and benefits are delivered at the local PACE center. 

To qualify for PACE, seniors must: 

  • Be aged 55 or older
  • Currently reside in a noninstitutional setting 
  • Require the type of care normally provided in a nursing facility
  • Be able to live safely in the community with supports available through PACE
  • Live in a PACE service area
  • Be either enrolled in MassHealth or be able to pay the PACE premium out of pocket

Once seniors enroll in PACE, all MassHealth services are provided through PACE-affiliated caregivers. Seniors are free to leave PACE at any time. 

For more information, contact Summit ElderCare, the PACE provider for Worcester County, at (877) 837-9009.
