The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas
Monthly senior care costs are largely based on the type of care provided, although the location also impacts prices as well. In Warren County, nursing home care is the most expensive senior care option because it involves around-the-clock skilled nursing along with room and board.
In-home options, such as a homemaker or home health aide services, are approximately $915 less per month than assisted living, based on 44 hours of care weekly. When comparing the various options, it’s important to recognize that residential care includes accommodation and all meals, while seniors who remain in their homes are responsible for ongoing expenses related to home maintenance, such as rent, property taxes and utilities.

Medicaid is the nationwide health coverage program designed to extend basic health services, such as emergency and acute care, primary care and long-term care, to those who have a low income and few resources.
Seniors who are seeking Medicaid coverage must meet income and asset (resource) limits. Individuals can earn up to $2,313 per month and own up to $2,000 in countable assets, while couples applying together can earn up to $4,626 a month and own up to $3,000 in countable assets.
Qualified Income Trust
Seniors who earn more than the current Medicaid limits may be able to qualify for Medicaid coverage by entering into a legal agreement with the state known as a Qualified Income Trust.
Also called a Miller Trust, seniors can deposit their excess income into a QIT in order to lower their declared income to achieve Medicaid eligibility. Upon death, any money in the QIT is payable to the state of Ohio.
For more information on the QIT contact Automated Health Systems at (844) 265-4722.
Ohio Assisted Living Waiver
Seniors who are covered by Medicaid and require help performing one or more activities of daily living, such as bathing, grooming, using the toilet and/or navigating their environment, may qualify for the Ohio Assisted Living waiver.
This Medicaid waiver program covers the cost of care for eligible seniors within an assisted living facility to prevent or delay nursing home placement. If approved, seniors may be provided with one or more of the following supports:
Note: Seniors who are enrolled in the ALW continue to pay for the room-and-board portion of their assisted living costs, and approval for the ALW doesn’t guarantee placement in an ALW-participating facility.
For more information and to request an ALW assessment, contact the Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio, the Area Agency on Aging at (800) 252-0155.
